|"Over the Italian Rooftops"|
Oil on Board
The photo for this painting was taken at sundown, so the light resembled a cloudy day, with no direct sunlight, which made things hazy and with low contrast.
Nevertheless I loved the landscape, so I really wanted to paint it.
The photo at the top is the final version, below are phase 1 and 2 of this painting.
The main change between phase 2 and 3 is that I deepened the color of the big roof.
|Over the Rooftops, Stage 1|
I originally posted this painting a few months ago, but I was not sure if I was finished with it. Then I worked some more on it: I made the shadows more colorful.

So I tried to apply this concept to this painting, adding blue and violet to the shadows and dark areas.
I feel like I was able to improve it, though I am not sure it shows from the photos, because green, blues, and violets are very hard to reproduce in a photo, they always look a little off.
After some more consideration, I decided the big roof did not stand out as much as I remembered, so I deepened its color.
And that was the last change, now I'll keep changing it, I promise. :D
