Rona in Wonderland or: Bella Italia
So, Venice.Everything in this city seems to be glowing - probably a result of the presence of so much water; objects radiate light and vibrate color. The effect is so intense that totally overwhelms the visitor, especially the art-minded, that needs to stop every second to appreciate a new beauty.
Before Venice I went to Civita Castellana, in the drawing above, a place onsidered "legendary" among plein air painters. Corot and Turner painted here; I was curious and the place took my breath away. It reminded me of dreams I had in the past - what a surprising encounter, to discover a dreamscape in reality!
