View of Alpi Apuani mountains

This is view of Alpi Apuani mountains behind Carrara in northern Tuscany. Carrara is where Michaelangelo got his marble from for his sculptures. The painting was done about 2 hours before sunset. The town of Carrara is nestling in the valley below the mountains.

10" x 12" painting, oil on linen, mounted on gatoboard

This is my notan study for the painting.

Here is the photo of the original scene
