The Olive Grove - #15 of 30

"The Olive Grove" - 6x6 - Oil on Canvas
"El Olivar" - 15x15 - Oleo



So today was a bit of an experiment and I haven't fully made up my mind about it  yet.  Usually I paint from photos or from life, but I don't make up too much stuff, just paint a glass where there wasn't one for example.  For this one today, I used a couple of photos just as reference plus memory to make this little study. I also had limited time AGAIN so had not much time to fuss with it. I like some things about it but there are some shapes that NEED to be changed and some highlights that need to be added. 

The inspiration for this came from the Florence area. From the Piazalle Michealangelo there are wonderful panoramic views of the whole city. There are some old walls and houses with of course olive trees as well as those very typically Mediterranean trees.  (Italian Stone Pine

Hoy fue un experimento y todavía no he decidido si estoy satisfecha o no. Normalmente pinto de fotos o de las cosas que tengo adelante, no invento cosas que no están, como por ejemplo, no agrego un vaso si no hay uno en la foto o a la vista. Hoy decidí usar un par de fotos y mi memoria para componer este cuadrito. De nuevo anduve con poco tiempo.  Me gustan algunas cosas pero hay ciertas formas que sí o si tengo que cambiar y tal vez agregue algunas luces. 

La inspiración de hoy vino de fotos tomadas desde Piazzale Michelangelo en Florencia desde donde se ven vistas panoramicas de toda la ciudad. Hay una murallas enormes y casonas en medio de olivares y de esos árboles típicamente del Mediterraneo, el Pino de Piedra Italiano
