From north-western Italy to Southern France it is The Riviera and stunningly beautiful.
It could be an afternoon in Manarola
with “lady of the grapes”
or sipping local wine by half-bottle
next the sea in Rapallo
Then again, it could be a small Italian working fishing village
before coming to the big city host of Nice France
with its amazing square
no matter which way you happen to look…
It is all good, fantastic and delicious! There is however, only one painting sketch and it is not of these grand views but rather a humble still life.
Basic Essentials – 25 x 35 cm acrylic on archival 185 lb paper.
Yet, it seems just right. Enough. Maybe even more than enough.
This is our last of three days in Nice France. Tomorrow we will be leaving for Aix en Provence and then Narbonne as we travel along the south of France. We will have no internet in the next places we are staying. Therefore, you may or may not hear from us again until we reach Barcelona Spain on May 23, 2014. So don’t worry. We are fine – just a little disconnected 😉
If you were to summarize the basic essentials of one of your favourite places what would be included?
