Burano Sera by Chris Oatley by ChrisOatley Burano Sera by Chris Oatley by ChrisOatley
My wife Angie and I celebrated 10 years of marriage with a trip to Europe. Here's a memory from a quiet evening on Burano Island, Italy.

I'll be giving away the Photoshop Brushes* I used to create this painting via my email newsletter: ChrisOatley.com/newsletter

Sign up now and be notified when I post them along with a bunch of other awesome new resources (Spring 2015).

(*Well, I'll be giving away the ones I personally created. ...which is most of them. I also used a few from Goro, a couple from Shaddy and one from Zedig.)

Haha. Well that would be amazing, since it took me 36 years of life and ten years of study to get to this point. My advice would be to exercise patience and focus on the fundamentals. So glad you like the painting!

This is fantastic, Chris!

Don't you think it's reminiscent of Rainbow row in Charleston SC? Except Charleston doesn't have that awesome canal.

I've actually been working on composition again, so of course you've been on my mind quite a bit. I've thumbnailed myself to death, lol.

I watched Grand Budapest Lounge yesterday, and it has replaced Royal Tennenbaums as my favorite W.A. film.

1.) Thank you, buddy. That's super-encouraging.

2.) Definitely re: Charleston. There were SOOO many spots in Charleston and Savannah etc. that I would love to paint soon. I want to do an Italy series. Then maybe something based on that whole deep American south trip we took... Could be super-fun.

3.) Grand Budapest was beautiful. I watched Moonrise Kingdom again recently and that one *really* resonated with me. I think Tenenbaums is still my favorite but there's something about Moonrise that *really* sticks with me...
