Setting sun on a Florence street

Watercolor "Sun setting on a Florence Street"

Watercolor “Setting sun on a Florence street” 14” x 22” on Arches rough paper. It is always a challenge to get light to beam off of the paper, but as the painting developed as planned, the intensity of the glare came to life. I keep tackling more difficult scenes and subjects. When I am about 50% complete, I often wonder if the painting will end as I planned. Watercolor does not erase very well! This is one on my favorite paintings. The challenge of capturing the light was gratifying.
