This is my latest coloured pencil piece. It's the 'sister' of the Silent Keeper, one of my entries to the UKCPS exhibition this year. I thought that they would look good together at the upcoming local exhibition where my work will be displayed, well they would if my Silent Keeper would like to return home. At the moment it's travelling backwards and forwards between the UK and Italy and I'm not friends with DHL carriers anymore!
(It's a long story...sigh..)
At the foot of a staircase, two statues Endymion and Aglaia from Greek mythology.
I just loved the double shadow in the late evening sun and it was my first sight of the privately owned 17th century Villa Valguarnera.
I had to stand and memorise the scene, although I did have a camera, I wanted to capture how I felt when I first walked up the long drive and through the gate.
