I have a nice peaceful mountainside commission to share with you. I liked the reasonably straightforward composition on this one… it has a lovely stillness to it with a big open blue sky. There’s plenty of interesting colour tones surrounding the building though with silvers and browns at the front of the evergreen treeline. Most of the background is left soft and painterly, with architectural details inked in with fine-liner. The painting was created on paper from references provided by the client. The photos had a few surrounding buildings in a similar Alpi a and the usual array of parked cars, but those were easily removed to provide a more focused composition. The final painting was then given as a work leaving present.
