Silvio's Corner Latest from Artist Silvio Silvestri
What is Happening? Silvio just returned from the Coast after five days of painting. A brief trip resulted in some interesting art from Santa Barbara to points north including carmel, san luis obispo, and Monterey. The results are new paintings posted in my website at Silviosilvestri.com. The ocean was very smooth, leading to colors in the water I rarely see. The reflections and green grass were brightly lit. Also, have continued my work from Italy where poppies were abundant and farm houses picturesque. I have been back for 7 months and am still perfecting my technique on rendering the distant hills. Tuscany has got to be one of the most incredible places on earth. Finally, the eastern sierra, Mammoth lakes area always draws my attention. The painting above is below Bishop showing descending light as it flows over the crest. To paint this beauty is such a gift and I hope this inspires you.
