Landscape vignette with a potted lemon-tree in front of the sunlit pink wall of a renaissance mansion in Tuscany.
I spotted this lovely scene on a recent stay in Italy and knew I had to paint it. However, it was done back home from a photograph and a quick watercolor sketch made on location, since this lovely place hosts many weddings and therefore photo sessions almost every day...
For me, the challenge was to keep the shadows light enough to render the bright sunlight.
