Via di Spirito Santo, Firenze

Painting of Via di Spirito Santo, Firenze
Via di Spirito Santo, Firenze

The last blog post I did showed the early stages of a watercolour I have been working on of a street scene in Florence. Last September I painted a number of sketchbook watercolours of Florence on location with a view to using these studies for some studio works.

This painting of Via di Spirito Santo includes many of the elements that are characteristic of Florence, the narrow streets with tall buildings that seem to shut out any daylight, antiquated lamps that hang over the streets, bicycles and locals darting in and out of doorways.

The painting Via di Spirito Santocan be seen at my Studio and Gallery in Ponteland.
