This week's painting is a fantastic house in Opio, a small village near Valbonne. Valbonne is one of the most populare villages of the Riviera area, lively throughout the year, with great restaurants, terraces, shops, café's, a market and that true provencal atmosphere...
This villa is situated on walking distance fromValbonne, yet in a quiet area, facing due South with lovely views over the countryside - down to the sea.
Here's the "making-of" of the aquarelle:
The picture of the house - a couple of small things will be "beautified", like the sky, the contrasts and the empty foreground, but in general this is a fine picture to work from
the drawing - and the sky is blue
an extra lavender bush on the right
a couple of plants on the left
the details finished and more contrast added in the shadows to bring out the sunny atmosphere and I'm done!
