In love with Tuscany!

Acrylic on three canvasses  total size 30 inches by 72 inches

One thing I most enjoyed during my Italy trip was the time spent in art galleries.Especially in Sienna, I had a hard time to move away from each gallery, probably I stood for hours! It was immense joy to watch the artists working on their paintings, mostly on Tuscan themes. Even when they look so similar to each other, I think each has its own character and beauty. I had to try out one such painting myself :-)  All through the painting session there was an apprehension of overdoing, carried away by the details, stopped  when I felt it was done! My choice was for  bright colors and big shapes to tune in to the Tuscan flavor.Hope you enjoy it :-)

  6. I was also in love with Tuscany last spring when I visited. You captured the depth of the landscape, rolling hills and vineyards, Italian Cypress and endless horizon, beautifully. Very interesting color choices, you are so contemporary!

  7. I think it's beautiful, and not like other paintings of Tuscany I've seen. The forms are familiar, but the colors are your own wonderful touch.

  18. I just had to enlarge this and get a better look, Padmaja. The yellow sky! I love that touch that balances those shapes in the fields below that are yellow. It enhances a softness to the light, below, on the fields. Excellent!
