Ciao Mariano, la primavera arriva anche li, bellissimi i colori, si vede che l'aria da te è molto pulita.
Un saluto, Marco.

Mariano Zucchi said...

Ciao Marco,
grazie per la visita . In realta' ad Atlanta l'aria non e' tanto buona ma io vivo a 20 miglia ed e' migliore. Si la primavera e qui'; e' l'inverno che non e' mai stato! I verdi li ho fatti con cad yellow and lamp black, il cielo con blue royal, viridian and white .
Buon lavoro,

ahh! There's the lamp black and cad y for the greens..very nice. The touch of viridian is beautiful in the sky. I love your lively brush work, and the boat rack! ciao, Mariano. :-)

Hi Liz,
thank you very much for visiting and for the nice comments. My compliment for your understanding of the Italian. Only you could have spot those canoes! Oltrough they are the center of attention, at least on my mind! My main sky is Lussier blue : ultramarine with equal amount of viridian (small quantities) mixed with a big blob of mixed white. At times instead of ultramarine i use cerulean, or Blue Royal -Rembradt brand, i like to experiment with diferent blues. Have a great Sunday

Hi Celeste,
thanks for visiting and for the nice comments. I added some worm brownish green on the left. A first for me. I am glad you are pleased with the overall effect. The rain gave me some problem, as the light changed a lot, before and after. I tryed to stay with before! Not easy as your eyes see a different scene! All the best Celeste, happy painting
