Imagining Florence

I have recently been commissioned to create a panel as a very special wedding present for a couple getting married in September. They both love Italy and are honeymooning there, so the theme is Italian, specifically Tuscany. I adore Italy and as soon as she said Tuscany I had images of  Florentine roof tops in my head! She was excited by this idea too and so I have whittled my drawing down to 2 depictions of the city………..I wonder which one she will choose?

    I’d go for the first (left hand) picture, mainly because I’m not keen on the box shape in the foreground of the other one, and I like the feeling in the first one that you are high up looking down on the landscape.

    oh I see what you mean, when you do something you are abit too in it I think. I much prefer the one on the left, but I need to give choice and I like the hills in the back ground of the other one! thanks for the constructive crit! I totally agree x
