WELCOME ! County vineyards, oil paintings, Rome
Above on the left is the progress on the painting I've been working on today. It's slower going than the previous one of the same theme. At the moment i need to let it dry, I want to lighten the value of the shadow, but cant yet; maybe tomorrow. Patience, right?
The Piazza Navona(below right), is full of artists, sort of like Paris's Montmatre. I love the fountains in Navona square...all green / blue and sparkling water gushing from massive white marble statuary. The fountain of the 4 rivers is my favourite.
Rome is beauty, beauty everywhere you look. Even the mediterranean pine trees which dot the landscape seem to be planned by nature as perfect forms to compliment its architechture.
