Procida, Italy VI, Italian Landscape Painting

Procida, Italy VI

To me, selection of a subject matter is usually a one-shot approach.  But when I am hopelessly taken with a particular scene, I paint it again and again.  The first painting is naturally the most direct expression of my emotional response to it, but I feel I have more freedom in subsequent paintings as I get to know the subject better.  So I play with designs, colors, forms, etc.  Sometimes I even change the time of day or the weather with a little help of imagination (Read my related blog post Power of Imagination).

A sunset scene at a small harbor on an island called Procida is one of those that captivated me so much.  See a coupe of paintings I did before this one:
