"Cannes Reflections" (Detail)

Here is the next "close up" in my latest series of oil paintings to share on nTopaz. This painting happened because I was working with a gallery in Cannes, in the south of France, and I wanted to make a beautiful oil painting from my trip to visit the gallery. I went with my family, and my mom, who has always been into boats, found a way to visit this beautiful Ferretti Yatch of which we were given a guided tour. Here is the complete painting:

I remember that this painting was completed in only 3 weeks, which for me is extremely fast.I think that I zoomed thought it so fast because the reflections were so surreal and fun to paint.

It seems to me a very clever and interesting way to show the beautiful view of Cannes from the boat on the sea, like an wide angle shot photography.

Dude I just realized my account isn’t following you anymore—wonder how long it’s been doing that?? 🤔 That’s about the tenth time I’ve caught it doing that, I wonder how many other people I think I’m following but actually not....

Oh, the technology.

I was wondering where you were, welcome back!👋😀

Geez, Matteo, I love how photorealistic this is ! And yet once I settle my eyes on it, it brings so much painterly goodness with the way you render the colours, the forms, the shadows <3 Absolutely wonderful !

And this was one of your faster pieces??? :O A M A Z I N G !!!!!!
