Trapani fortress

Watercolour and gouache, 21cmsx31cms

Because we were there in September, the weather was perfect with warmth without great heat and there was plenty of movement in the sky; I don’t like cloudless skies when I paint in watercolour. This old fortress had a wonderful colour of ochres and golds in the late afternoon.

Here, in rural green France, I feel nostalgic for the blues and golds of Sicily.
