Hilltop Village Final...Tom Herrin Watercolor

This version of a painting of a hilltop village in Italy is my final version that I am submiting to the Mid-Southern Watercolor summer show at Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock. The colors are better and the values are correct. I could make a few more changes but I want. If you like it let me know and be sure to come to Cantrell Gallery to see the art. The show will be open for the month of June.

Italian Hilltop Village...A watercolor by Tom Herrin

The village painting you see opposite was painted from a photograph I took while I was in Italy in 2007. I took a lot of these pictures but only a few came out to be good compositions for a watercolor painting. I like this painting; however, I know it could be better. I may give it another shot before I call it a day painting this type of village. Or, I could go back to Italy and do some more research. Maybe?

Cesi, Italy Apartments

Good apartments is Cesi, Italy (pronounced Chesi) are hard to find. The buildings you see here is not what I would call a nice block of apartments. However, I was fascinated by the look of the place and it obvious age. So, I painted the building back in the studio at The La Romita School of Art. At first I did not like what I painted but over time I have come to like the painting after cropping.
