Via Lio Maggiore

You can view and purchase this painting here.

This is my second entry into the Virtual Paintout's Lido di Jeloso location. I found this country lane on a small island. It seems to be the only road, in fact. There's some sort of agritourism hotel just around the bend—looks like a nice place.

Amazing how a little bit of sky sets everything in place

  1. Love how you make a landscape look so simple to paint. Beautiful feel to this country lane.

    1. Thanks Margie! I know, it always seems so easy after it's done, doesn't it? :-)
