La Scalinata a Mezzonotte – commissioned painting

This new piece, “La Scalinata a Mezzonotte” was completed in February. Done on a 16×24 gallery wrap canvas, it depicts the famous Spanish Steps in Rome, in my “signature” elongated style. The customer of this project enjoys spending a lot of time in Rome, and he sent me a few photos from his last stay there. The photos were taken at Christmas time, hence the Obelisk is turned into a Christmas tree (with green laser beams at the top, oh yes!). There was a lady with an umbrella in one of his photos, looking up at the stairs – she had to be incorporated into the painting! – as well a slightly mysterious full moon, surrounded by clouds.

Photos below show painting’s progress, from start to finish.
