A Secret Place
The next few pages for the Sketchbook Project 2012. My theme is Encyclopedia of ... Secret Places.

This old 17th century villa is falling apart. It's windows are bricked up and is missing most of it's shutters but it's still lovely, especially in the late afternoon when shadows fall over the front.
