20 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
This was a scene looking down on Lake Orta in Northern Italy. I had done a similar scene in watercolor several years ago and decided to give it a try in oils with an aim of getting a sense of depth. I decided to go with a long rectangular canvas for a more panoramic effect to emphasize the breadth of the lake and mountains.
Lake Orta is one of 5 lakes in the lake region of northern Italy. September 21-28, 2013, I'll be taking a group of painters to be inspired and paint on location at another of the lakes, Lake Garda. If you are interested and would like more information, see Lake Garda
for a flyer with the details. There are still a few spots left and the program is open to artists of all experience levels and all mediums.
Here are a few scenes from my last trip there to give you an idea of the beautiful views and subjects to paint.
