The Back of the Houses



40x40cms oil on wood
The older houses in Sicilian towns are often very beautiful with balconies, terracotta roof tiles and old doors, just to name a few of their interesting qualities. But sometimes the view from the back, although unadorned can be picturesque too.
In the mountain-top village of Erice in Sicily the winding cobbled streets are a magnet for tourists to admire the old and historic houses but round the back there are some great views too.  This row of  houses and the light falling on them caught my eye.
