Mural classes at Lynne Rutter Studio

Here is the colored sketch for the first class I will teach at Lynne Rutter Studio this summer.
I had done a pencil study on paper and this week I have painted a color study on canvas.
I have worked from three different pictures I took at Lake Como a couple of years ago ; the door was shot in Provence,
The point is to see a series of technical points relative to landscape painting ( sky, remote hills, village, water), and some other in the foreground ( vegetation, balustrade, bench). The door itself is a nice subject for studying moldings , lights, shadows and various reflections. Linear perspective is also part of this class, for the tracing of the foreground tiles in particular. I hope you will like this.
