Staying at Rivalago Hotel on the shores of Lake Iseo I painted this serene vista in watercolours. With only shades of Blues to see, the palette was easy to mix. To keep it pure to the view, no pencil marks were drawn just a brush loaded with paint to show the simplicity of this breathtaking scene.
The light changes daily in the Italian Lakes, the days start with sunshine flooding through the open finistra, days are spent chasing shadows around sunlight buildings or sparkling light dancing on the Lake. Late afternoon the delights come to life, a mass of colours subdue to tonal shades, shapes are simplified with just a wash of colour.
To sample this as an artist is truly wonderful
