Remembering Florence

Remembering Florence
21 x 15 Watercolor by Pat Fiorello
 This is the second of the pair of paintings recently commissioned by a client.

She originally had taken an horizontal picture of this favorite resort she stayed at in Florence, Italy. I could tell by the way she talked about this place that she really had such warm memories of being there. So with a little cropping I was able to translate it into the vertical format she needed to fit on her wall space and be consistent with the other painting.

Again, took some artistic license to move a few things around, make it a sunnier day, simplify and emphasize some colors that were in the other painting so the palettes would harmonize. Also brought more variety to the greens. cooler in the distance, warmer up close so there wasn't so much of the same green as in the photos.

If you'd like memories of one of your favorite places turned into a painting you can enjoy each day or for a special gift, please contact me for a complimentary design session- either in person or via phone.
