Panicale Morning, Lunigiana

Cat. No. 1260 Panicale Morning, Lunigiana, Italy – 14in x 11in – Oil on Board

The view from my terrace in the morning in the fall. There is a river, the Magra, running in the valley ahead, and in the colder months it causes a fog in the valley which gives the landscape an ethereal mood in the morning. When the sun is rising, it just catches the hill below me, bathing the little church in a golden light. Just magical!

Here are two views of the scene on different days. I chose the first one because of the orange, blue color harmony. Also the second view might be harder to interpret as fog. It almost looks like a sea!
