This is a pastel painting of the steep path leading down to a local beach.
It's locally known as the 'Baia dei Francesi' (french Bay), due to the large
numbers of French tourists who stayed there in the 1970's and 80's.
I'm sure it has a proper name and I will have to find out.
Here's a photo from the footpath.looking down. (No hand rail either!)
Pastel is not a medium I've used much, but I did enjoy doing this
one. I tried spraying it with a fixative from the local art shop and
found that it made the colours darker and dull, not exactly the effect
I wanted. I wonder if there's better way of fixing pastel or a really
good brand of fixative available?
