Hand-painted watercolour painting of Piazza Garibaldi in the town of Limone sul Garda on Lake Garda in northern Italy.
In 2010, I visited Lake Garda in the Lombardy region and the province of Brescia in Italy in early summer.
During a beautiful tour of this region, I visited the colourful town of Limone sul Garda located in the north-west of Lake Garda.
This picturesque village is all about lemons. Many places in the village have lemon trees and market stalls selling the big yellow lemons.
Lovers of Limoncello will feel very welcome here.
During a nice city walk, I took a photo of the Piazza Garibaldi square. I was very impressed by the summer cosiness of the moment, the bright and inviting colours of the restaurant with white parasols on the terrace and the green mountains. The composition of the picture appealed to me and I knew at that moment that one day I would repaint this picture in watercolour. And this idea is 'now 13 years later' a reality.
The painting has taken on a cheerful, illustrative and realistic character. I don't call my own watercolour style 'realism in an illustrative jacket' for nothing.
Piazza Garibaldi is known for its large terrace that is part of the yellow-coloured restaurant Gemma overlooking Lake Garda and the mountains beyond. The square has beautiful tiles in earthy colours laid in a curve. This gives the composition a playful perspective and depth.
Limone sul Garda is a municipality in the Italian province of Brescia on Lake Garda in northern Italy.
Welcome to WatercolorWall.
The studio of painter and designer Ricardo Bouman. Ricardo is a watercolourist with a passion for travelling and discovering beautiful landscapes, cities and architecture. When it comes to painting, he enjoys painting realism and, since a few years, impressionist and abstract art.
Ricardo has been painting with watercolour for over 25 years, translating his own travel experiences into paintings and illustrations. He does painting in the traditional way, with the whole process being carried out in a handmade manner. From stretching the watercolour paper, sketching the composition to painting with watercolours. The work is then photographed in high resolution, making the painting available in high quality as a Wall Decoration.
Ricardo paints in artistic, illustrative and modern styles using various painting techniques. His subjects often have a connection to nature, an emotion or a location he has visited himself.
