Portofino harbour, my perspective is really not good but I thoroughly enjoyed painting it.
Artists are messy and I am an artist

Louisa

So good to see your work again.

I love the brightness of the buildings against the green of the hillside.

Maybe a bit more darkness at the bottom of the buildings as they appear to me to be floating on the water.

Yes, it looks like a fun painting.

Great job Louisa :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Just be careful to not add too much sky reflections in the water, it make to mirror the background O0

beautiful Paintings Louisa, Liz and Tracy.   

 I did one in acrylic and from an other angle, that was fun to do. here is my version.
 
Thank Nolan for the lesson, there are always some techniques I did not know or remembered. Please let me know if I need more details or missing something. Like the branch at the top left should I make it darker or lighter.   :1hug:

Kathy,

Oh, so lovely.  Great details.

Not sure, but all the white awnings along the waterfront appear to be all the same value.  Should they gradually darken (or lighten?) at some point?

Nevertheless, it shows that you still have all the great skills your moved with!

 :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: Danielle, I love your version of Portofino done in acrylic paint.  I think acrylic paints lend themselves to Italian scenes with their colored buildings! You did a wonderful job with your painting!  :clap: :clap: :clap: ~Liz

Thank you so much everyone  for your  lovely comments and critics it is much appreciated.    :hug:

Mea thank you for the critic, in the picture you do not see much of the  colour in the white but I did add a bit of the sky color in the far ones, maybe not enough. I will look at it again ,  thank you for your keen observation.   :smitten:
