The honeymoon painting

My husband and I got married last year after 10 years together (better late than ever!) and we went to Lake Como for our honeymoon (if it's good enough for George Clooney, it's good enough for us!). I didn't take my painting kit with me as it would have been a bit rude to leave my husband alone on our honeymoon while I'm off painting. However I did take some reference pictures and got around to have a try at this view of Como in my studio last month. So here it is:

Como, Italy in September  10"x10"  oil on board

Here are a couple of close-up of the painting:

I got good feedback from people last time I posted the step by step images of the painting process so I'll try to share them whenever I can:

This painting is available on my website in the Italy folder alongside all my available work.
