Monday 18th June 2018 – Camogli

I painted this artwork about Camogli last week, in front of a group of 50 children. I told them the way I start an artwork, and how I finish it.

It is called “Water edge”. The sand in the foreground blends with the rushing of the waves. The sky is the brightest and sweetest part of the painting, the pink on the left invites me to follow it with the sight. Good summer […]
