    Ave Maria a trasbordo - A Segantini copy

    Since recently a saw many lake landscape from Pat, among which one of the Italian larger lakes beneath the Alps, I decided to proceed to a copy from a painting by Giovanni Segantini.
    This Italian painter of the 2nd half of the XIX century, mostly unknown abroad, was a great painter of alpine landscape, who used its own way a divisionist technique. He was for sure a stunning artist who would have become a top ranking one should he lived a little more ...

    I added also the original which required a larger canvas and much more work to be reproduced better (I didn't find tricks good and simple enough to simulate the actual brushwork and texture).

    Dear Pat, it actually tokk some time at the beginning, when I tried to see how I could get a divisionist effet, i.e. little strokes optically giving the right color, in a quick way. I didn't find any shortcut though, so I proceeded fast to finish it without using the canvas size and the thousand littl paint strokes it would have require for simulating the painter's style with enough accuracy. After all the composition deserved to be painted anyway and this painter known more and his Alps inspired painting too ( http://www.google.it/search?tbm=isch...f&aqi=&aql=&oq=)
    ... thank You!

    Dear Ghxpainter, a quiet scene of the old good time, when life was simple and hard, but natural, not stressed, and we suffered far less of nevrosis, is always beneficial to see and paint ... Thank you!

    Dear Jibes, actually the boat passengers were painted quite fast on the upper layer. Color spots first and then some mixing and refining strokes for details (it's much rougher than the real one), so just in time before the two sheep in front of us decided to dive and take a bath ... Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Amanda! That moment of the day used to be very peaceful and, since the only work left before sleeping was the evening dinner, ten-fifteen peaceful minutes at twilight were then usually dedicated to say the rosary .... no vampires used to fly after the sunset.

    Dear Sandra, I'd rather say I possibly make interesting selections for a challenging copy attempt. I hardly had any other merit here than to interpret some way this Segantini's visual poetry. Thank You!

    Pls be informed that, notwithstanding the arc by the water, we're not in St. Louis US here anyway, dear Katie. Thank you!

    Thank you, dear Belvrog, also for Your wishes! It woudl have taken to much to get the result without a planned approach and patient work to long for me to follow, so I used far less strokes, thus they don't tone down a little harmonically as in the original divisionistic technique, also because I pick colors intuitively at each stroke from the full palette option. Nice to have You back anyway!

    Thank You, dear Pink Panther! You certainly harmonised it very well with Your color ajustment. his morning I tried and got a similar enough effect by using AR adjust feature, although I guess that photoshop or similar programs like drawplus (I've got) are better to that purpose.
    Panta rei (everything flows)!
