Fiat car in a Fabriano backstreet


Fabriano, Italy, 15" x 11"

I don't often do close-ups of cars, but this being an Italian scene I had to include a Fiat.  I must have been going through a colour mood with those bright colours of the buildings, but going quite cool into the shadows.  I resisted the temptation of slapping on white gouache for the figure highlights (just did some careful painting around head and shoulders) but it crept onto the car headlights!
