Attention all lovers of architecture and romance! Now you can combine the two into one! This panoramic view of Florence, Italy is from an incredibly detailed limited edition print from a watercolor painting by Lotus MacDowell. She is well known for her meticulous depiction of scenery and objects, recording, as she refers to, the beauty of the ordinary … this is no exception.
In this image, painted from the viewpoint at the top of a tower in the central square, we see all the buildings, packed and overlapping each other. In the foreground, the sunlight beats down upon the baked tile roofs and the cut stone facades, creating a stark contrast to the cool shadows. The orange-red tiles bring a cohesive look to the composition and the rich shadows give this scene a three-dimensional appearance.
