View to Lake Garda

This is a small painting I did for my class as a demonstration on our first day of the workshop here in Lake Garda, Italy.  We are staying at a hundred +  year  old convent high on a hill overlooking the lake. There are beautiful views from every direction.  I liked this one with the flower filled urn as a focal point which was not overly complex since I've got a number of beginning painters as well as those more experienced artists here.  Today we stressed the importance of simplifying and not trying to include everything you see into the painting.  For those new to painting in location, it can be overwhelming, so it is crucial to pick one idea and a few large shapes and leave everything else out.

  1. This is a lovely composition. I sure wish I was with you. Blogging brings friends and I feel that way about you AND your paintings.
