Via Porto, Licciana Nardi, Italy

Landscape oil painting: Via Licciana Porto, by Barry John Raybould

Villages in Tuscany often have an entrance gate leading into the historical center. Licciana Nardi in the Lunigiana area of Tuscany, has a beautiful porto. The late afternoon shadow falling across this gate, together with the washing hanging outside a villager’s house, created an interesting design for this painting that I completed in a couple of hours one late afternoon.

I love the color pairs created by the light falling across the wall and the white washing. The blue shadow on the washing made a great contrast with the ochre colored walls.
