Atop the Slopes of Amalfi
The Amalfi coast is spectacular especially when viewed from above. The traffic curls around very narrow roads. The buses barely squeeze by each other and the daring motor scooters zip in and out. One cannot set up an easel but quick sketches and photos are very helpful for later paintings. I wanted a sense of height and some sparkle from the perched buildings. The hills were given different values and warmed as they came to the foreground. This creates some depth and height.
