Five-Day Art Challenge on Facebook – Day 2

For the second day of the challenge, I decided to show some landscapes from around the world. I like to get inspired by what we witness while travelling. These scenes are from  , San Sebastian Del Oeste Mexico, San Giminiano, Italy and Tiskita,Costa Rica. I find it very interesting to observe  the different architectures and learn why everything is built the way it is, with what materials.

I have added colours to the rendition of San Giminiano just for the fun of it since these ancestral cities are mainly grey and beige in colours. Built on the hillsides, streets are narrow, steeply sloped and some contain a lot of stairs. The oil was applied over a textured base of flexible paste.

  1. Quelle beauté San Giminiano Revisited, je ne sais pas quoi, mais il y a dans cette toile quelque chose qui m’attire, comme si je voulais rentrer dans la toile, être voyeuse, ou entrer sur la pointe des pieds et visiter ces jolies maisons ou tout simplement me balader sur les toits…. pour moi, cette toile est très vivante, invitante.
