Bolsena Gate

Something from a photo I took in Italy back in 2006 when we went on a bike tour of Latium & Umbria. We liked wandering around all the old hilltop towns. This one was a little resort town on the shores of a lake, and I think it was my favourite out of all the towns we visited.

The fact that it was a long downhill ride from the worst climb of our trip probably had something to do with that.

I think I need to work on this one a little bit longer. The gate itself is still looking a little flat. It was a troublesome painting. I thought I'd try doing an underpainting in warm & cool colours (you can still kinda see the pink peeking through the gray of the wall) but for some reason it didn't the effect I was looking for.
