Pinking cherries in Pecetto - Italy

Watercolor on Favini 150 lbs watercolor paper
15 x 12 inches

This is a watercolor I made for a show in my local Univeristy whose Theme was Pecetto and its traditions and landscape.
Well, Pecetto is an ancient village on top of a hill. The zone around is full of cherry trees ans I prefered to focus my imagination on the pick-up moments in spite of most people that pointed on monuments and old walls.
In the background I've sketched the village surrounded above by the Alpes scenary, in the center is the Monviso where the Po river has its source.

I'm experincing new way to paint, more water and lights effects.

Great, Lore. The fading background adds to the illusion of distance. Nicely done ★
