Terracotta Vases at Villa Cimbrone
11 x 14

When you first enter Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, you are greeted with beautiful eighteenth century terracotta "vases" that line the path to the Avenue of Immensity. It is a beautiful site! I love to paint old pots and enjoy capturing their weathered texture and age using multiple layers of similar color values; in this case purple/blue, yellows and a little bit of green. I have enjoyed doing multiple paintings of pots including the Lunafor urn "Sitting Tall at Boothbay Gardens" featured on my web site.
