Trapani-Sicily

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.
