Finally my first painting posted for this year!
I painted this entirely from imagination, without any reference photo. It has been such an interesting process; I had fun and I think I learned quite a bit.
The idea for the landscape came from memories of Tuscany, and the inspiration for the colors came from some new colors that I bought, very unusual for me - I usually mix my paint from the few basic colors, I did not own any fancy hues. Like a child I was super excited to try them all - you should have seen how psychedelic it looked after the first hour! Then, layer after layer, I toned it down.
Now I'm quite happy with it, I find it relaxing, despite the yellow sky. :)
