Dreamhouse in Rio

This house is somewhere near Rio de Janeiro. It was the second house of a Dutch expat family, and they have very fond memories of it. It was their little palace, with its' beautiful round pool (not in the picture), the lush green, the diffused sunlight. They commissioned this painting to get that atmosphere back in the appartment they moved to lately. I truly liked doing the painting: the plants and trees, the shape of the mountains, all is so different from what we have here! And so are the light and the colours, I used quite a different palette...
