Impressions of Italy
Gondola in Venice
Patty says "I recently had the opportunity to study in Italy with a young professor from the Florence Academy of Art. It was a life-altering experience. With this series, I am trying to combine the classical style of painting of my instructor with my view of the Italian life style."
"I paint what I imagine more than what I see. I painted these in my studio based on photos as I am a terrible plein aire painter. Yuk! Bugs, wind, the sun baking my jeans into my legs. Did you know if the sun moves, you are supposed to stay put?"
