Monday 22nd February 2016 – Sunset above the wet dock

This Monday I propose you an artwork about the sea! The title is “Sunset on the wet dock”, and is an oil on canvas of 70x80cm. While I was painting, I was interested in doing something that breaks in the sunset and that’s why I put that fluorescent pink in the sky, reflected in the sea. I often need something strange, unexpected, to be able to fix in the memory what I saw. Happy Monday, and good week!

That day it was as if the heavens were opened, and the warm, shimmering light of sunset reverberated in the reflections of the sea. I tried to make this show into the canvas you see. There is […]

Monday 30th May – The same emotion

This work is one of my first, in 2008, of great impact because it measures 200x250cm. I saw it a few days ago and it was great, because after eight years has given me the same emotion, even bigger! It represents the port of Rimini from the other side of the new wet dock, where the great reflection of the lighthouse stands out. The horizon line of the port gives breath and sense of depth to the whole work. For […]
