Monday 27th April 2020- Ocean

In moments like these I feel more than ever the need to dive into wider horizons to breathe deeply! Like in this ocean that I had seen in Portugal. I miss traveling and seeing beautiful places, and during the waiting this painting helps me to immerse myself with the colors in these scenarios, where the border between the horizon and the sky disappears to give space to that beam of light that makes the atmosphere so full of surprise.

The color of the Ocean ranges […]

Monday 7th May 2108 – Ocean

I painted the picture of this Monday last week, in front of the children of a kindergarten. I tried to show to these children how an artwork is born, from the white canvas, to the preparation of colors, to the last nuance. In the foreground I inserted some red veins to give a sense of the deep abyss of the ocean. Painting in front of the children was a very beautiful experience, because thanks to their candor and openness my […]
