L' Arco

L' Arco (The Arch) - oil/panel - 5"x5" - sold

The quality of light in Tuscany is truly amazing and from my time spent there I can clearly see why so many artists would be attracted to work in such an environment.

Warm light cascading over walls gave cool highlights, and strong contrasting shapes of light and dark appeared everywhere in the early morning hours, while in the late evenings a cooler light created warmer and even more luminous soft long stretching shadows that reached out everywhere.

Walking under this beautiful Arch each day towards the gardens in the background was so inviting. The scene just had to be captured.
