Pienza Balcony II

Pienza Balcony II
 8 x 10 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

This may look familiar. I did a painting of this scene a couple of weeks back. I decided to do another version really emphasizing what I loved most about this scene. I cropped the view in even further, added more flowers and upped the color intensity, played down the doors and accentuated the edges of the shadows of the balcony.  While I liked the first version (below) which was pretty faithful to the photo, I think version II is a stronger design and says more about what initially grabbed me about the scene. I'm a big proponent of revisiting a subject over and over to push your vision of it further. There is always something to be learned.
