This is my second painting from my trip to Italy last month. One morning, we took a bus from Florence to Perugia. Perugia is incredible, and it has an amazing panoramic view of deep space, the likes of which I've only seen in Italy. In this painting, I tried to capture a glimpse of the space and fleeting early afternoon light -- a most humbling experience. :)

The day before this painting, I spent the day at the Accademia and Uffizi, looking at (and drawing from) the David, as well as life-changing paintings by Piero, Durer, Bellini, Holbein, Titian, del Sarto, Vasari, Tintoretto, Velasquez, Goya, Chardin, Rembrandt, Rubens... and a whole bunch of Dutch painters that just blew me away. I'll share more about the Accademia and Uffizi in my next post. SIGN UP HERE to receive it.
