Secrets

This is an oil painting I did from one of my photos that I took In Romania. The town was Sighisoara in Transylvania. This was the town where Vlad III, the character that inspired Stoker' novel of Count Dracula. It is a very picturesque village and was in the process of being restored when we visited in 2000.
The painting is 50x40cm'20"x15.75"

Very nice Carol. You captured every element of the picture. I didn't see what medium you did this in. Was it the oil pastels. Norma

I have worked in pastels [oil] but these are oil paintings. Still struggling with techniques.... the more I do the more I learn...

Thanks
