It really gives me the idea to try painting a simple scene like this (digitally maybe).

Really beautiful work, Rihard. The touches of blue and lavender and use of lights and shadow is top notch.

Thank you very much, Alan! I tried to experiment a bit with unusual color choices and different brushstrokes and finish. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Time to move on to my "bigger project", with a smoother finish! I think I'll do some more painted sketches in the meantime, though :)

Very real, actually wasn't sure if it was a photo till I looked up close. Nice work,like the lighting and tons of architectural detail.

Thank you very much, I love painting old streets like this one. The buildings always cast interesting shadows on each other and there's a lot of play of light :)
