Florence from Giardino Bardini - Third day
Change of plan. I have decided that it will be a more interesting picture if I don't have loads of misty lights all over the city but leave it shrouded in mist which gives it a more timeless feel and not so literal as to how it would possibly look. Apart from the fact that the mid-ground bridge is modern (the Nazi's blew up all the bridges apart from the Ponte Vecchio in the Second World War), this could be Florence hundreds of years ago. I think that also this keeps the mysterious quality that the early states of this painting had. The lightest part of the painting will now be the reflections of moonlight near the bridge (Ponte alle Grazie) on the River Arno.
