Garden Spot II

Garden Spot II
8 x 10 oil painting

My friend's husband had taken a lovely photo of a sunlit bench in Italy and he generously gave me permission to use it as inspiration for a painting. I did not want to copy it exactly, so used another bench and adjusted the flowers with an aim towards an impressionistic painting conveying the feeling of the sunlit flowers over the bench. I initially painted Garden Spot I but then decided to have the bench more on an angle so did a second version, Garden Spot II, which I think is a little more dynamic and better fulfilled on my original intention.
