On Sardinia Italia

I painted this scene via Google Street Maps for Bill Guffey's October Virtual Paint Out on the beautiful island of Sardinia. The islands topography is mostly hilly...making for some dramatic road views.The view that I painted was cropped from a larger scene of a group of buildings on top of a hill. Here I used a small canvas to do a quick painting exercise. Someday I may paint the whole scene.
The canvas was toned with a red under painting. Some can be seen in the sky.

Another stunning piece, Den. I believe your participation in VPO may be how I first found your blog. Love that the red has tended toward pink in the sky. Quite a natural look!

Love the late afternoon golden hour feel in this painting.
