A Vertical View
This is the view from my hotel on the coast. I took the elevator down to minus 6 for my room. It was down another few levels before reaching the walkway that wound further down to the water. Quite a spectacular view. The vertical format was chosen to emphasize the vastness of the stone wall. I painted the road and tunnel above to give an idea of how exciting the driving is on the Amalfi Coast. The house was there and I included it in the painting to allow something for comparative size. I left the beach and water inlet white or near white to give the painting a focal point.
By the way, the water was warm and I did plenty of swimming.
