This is part of a Sicilian town clinging to the hillside. What really attracted me to the scene was seeing all the rooftops from above and all the old fashioned terracotta tiles. If ever I was going to build a house I would have to use some of those!
I started with watercolour, letting the colours bleed into each other, then I used coloured pencil for the details. I used Canson Aquarelle paper, which is the best I've found so far that suits both medias...but the search is still on for the perfect paper!
