|'Walking in Turin' oil on canvas 40x40 cms|
I recently flew back to Italy via Turin and spent a day there before continuing my journey. A day is by no means long enough to see a city but I walked until my feet were dropping off!
Turin is a very elegant city, one beautiful square leading to another.

A quick sketch is a good excuse for a rest as well as a nice lunch and glass of wine!

There are plenty of museums in Turin, I chose to visit the Musem of Oriental Art (MAO)...I lost count of the rooms and floors of this museum, housed in a 17th century palazzo. It's a well organised museum and there is every thing from Samurai armour to ancient Chinese pottery.
