Painting of Lake Como in Italy by Kate Duffy

Painting of Lake Como Italy by Kate Duffy 06

“Varenna, Lake Como” – acrylic on canvas, 2006

Lake Como in Italy is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. This painting is of Varenna, one of the small towns that sits on the edge of Lake Como.

I wanted to experiment with texture so I created this painting using large amounts of acrylic paint and a palette knife. Although it’s difficult to see the surface of the painting in this picture, in real life it is rugged and thick with slices of colour. Yum.

I also experimented with texture in my painting of Brighton Pier.
