View from San Gimignano, Early Evening


Image size: 225 x 300 mm

An Original Fine Art Watercolour Painting of San Gimignano in Tuscany, Italy.

The medieval Tuscan town San Gimignano is famous for its towers which make for a very distinctive skyline. However looking from San Gimignano across the countryside into the early evening sunlight can be just as enchanting.

This simple composition is an exercise in ariel perspective, allowing the distant washes to create a sense of depth. The dark foreground allows the viewer to rest on the main area of interest, the picturesque buildings, some in shadow, some highlighted by the low evening light.
