The Green Door



Hidden away in a corner, in a small village in the middle of Sicily, a tiny green door.  Obviously not used very much, otherwise you'd have to step over the plant pots everytime you went in or out. 
I'd love to have a back door like this, with perhaps a big old key to go with it.

I would even love to have a FRONT door like this . . . surrounded by all that beautiful rock work . . . it's so charming. Your sketch is superb!!!

Totally charming - and I've just noticed that Bettyfromtexas ^ has used the same word. You manage it every time, Cathy! x

Very nicely done and you made it look so inviting!

Deborah said...

Fabulous! You have really captured a moment here. Now where is the key?

Connie said...

Super! Love the green and the rocks or stucco, and the potted plants too. In fact, I'd love to live there!

Sarah Melling said...

Oooh, I'd like to live behind that door. What a beautiful illustration. You are so fortunate to live in such a picturesque place, Cathy! I'm curious: do you scan or photograph your work when you post it? Your images are beautiful!

You've got some beautiful colors going on here. Excellent illo.!

I would flip out to see a door like that! Love the green of the door - beautifully done!

Lovely. I can just imagine a very lazy cat lying right in front of it. A very idyllic scene indeed ;-)

Bella said...

And some say a green door is unwelcoming! How wrong could they be?

This stunning Cathy! Beautifully rendered! I wish I had a door like that!

Martine said...

Fantastic colours on this nicely sketched door! The texture on the stones is beautifully rendered too !
The whole page could be the cover for a fairy tale book !

Love the colors and the textures - I want a door like this one day!

Love the intensity of colours you have in this drawing and great contrasts.

It is a fabulous door!

I have a vague song running through my head about a green door! I'm sure it must be the door into 'The Secret Garden' - a favourite childhood book.

Beautiful painting of a lovely door!

Great character, love the treatment of the stone.

Alex said...

Such a beautiful door! That's a great angle and the stones are so detailed. Love it!

I love old villages, and old doors, too (love to photograph them). This one is great, that green color is incredible! Beautifully done!

It's so lovely! You did a fantastic job with the stonework .... well, really on every single part of it! nancy

Delightful painting, so welcoming. Alas! I have the big old key, but not the door. :0)

Lovely Cathy, so wish I lived in Sicily!

This is just so amazing! Love the way you've captured the atmosphere.

Beautiful!
I like the way you have caught every subtle detail of the wall, letting us feel as we were there, in that beautiful timeless place...
