Monday 8th April 2019 – Cliffs

In this Irish painting there is a light that goes beyond the cliffs at the bottom and that creates an atmosphere of contagious glow. The rocks, full of colors, created with spatula strokes, brings out the contrast with the deep and delicate veiling of the ocean. Inside the life of the rocks and in the turf there is my attempt to grasp the natural colors of that enchanting place that in some places is realistic and in other parts, instead, […]

Monday 27th May 2019 – Calm Ocean

Monday 12th August 2019 – Eastern Fjords

The wild nature of Iceland has not struggled to get into my canvases. I wanted to focus on the creeks of the fjords overlooking the Atlantic Ocean to show these wonderful openings. In the foreground the light traces the path that leads to the tip of the fjord. The blue of the ocean is an intense ultramarine (when I saw it I didn’t believe it) and it softens all that dominance of the green. Last days of vacation in Croatia, […]
