This is the kind of art us “digital artists” should be drawing inspiration from. Italian painter Pietro Piccoli is new to me, but he has definitely made himself known well before I could write a post about him.
His bio reads:
The essence of the Mediterranean is color and light; hence, everything in Piccoli’s works focuses on these two elements. His paintings capture cities, beaches, and seas with a compelling blend of realism and abstraction, visual detail, and imagination which will ignite your appreciation for the beauty which surrounds. (paraphrased)
