Cinque Terra Boats framed 12x16 $225.00
I believe these were boats at Porto Fino. It was a beautiful sunny day and so much fun to pretend we were part of the rich and famous that frequent this Italian Riviera! I loved this white boat glowing like a jewel in the sun and that is what I tried to capture. Its difficult to place a white object on a dark ground without it looking cut-out or floating there like a balloon-- so the red boat helps to balance and the boats in shadow help to give some more spatial depth to the image. Anyway-these are the kinds of visual problems that make each painting interesting and challenging.
