Bellagio Summer, 2019-22 , oil on canvas board, 31 x 40 cm.
Started en plein-air while I participated in a painting workshop in Bellagio in August 2019, the unfinished work sat in my Sydney studio for two years before I recently completed it. Bellagio is at the heart of the Lake Como tourist trade. The central building here is Hotel du Lac with a guest gazing out toward the spectacular lake. The view looks north toward Alp Pigheé and the Italian Alps.
