Remembering Como

Remembering Como
21 x 15 Watercolor by Pat Fiorello

This is one of a pair of paintings I just completed for a commission client. The paintings will hang on either side or a mirror in a grouping of artwork. Initially the client was looking of two of my existing Italy paintings, but when we met, I suggested that we create new paintings of her own special memories from her travels to Italy and then we could make them the perfect size for what she needed. Typically when working from a client's own photo's there is a need for some artistic license ( like removing the big white building in the bottom of the photo, adding some color variety etc.. ) while still keeping the essence of the place they fondly recall.
