Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

The illumination in this watercolor painting is all from my imagination. I took a picture of this scene in the daytime, with cars and pedestrians and the sun shining. My challenge to myself when painting it was to paint the scene as a nighttime picture, with the clock tower illuminated against the night sky.

  1. I love this painting. Actually, I think it’s almost any combination of painting (not photo) and Italy that I love. But seeing your work here makes me want to go that street right now!

I'm interested in hearing what you think!
