Oil on canvas, 25 x 36cm,
I remember feeling so calm sitting on the balcony overlook the beautiful scenery at Lake Frassino. The sunset was stunning, creating such an intense orange glow over the quiet, motionless Italian Lake.
This is part of my series looking at places that stir my emotions. Sunsets are so difficult to capture in paint but I had to try. To get the intensity of light, everything has to be darker and I suggested detail using bristle brushes for texture in the oil paint. I hope this relaxes you too.
