Highly textured impasto palette knife modern impressionist oil painting on stretched canvas ( square format ) 30 x 30 cm ...
I was inspired to paint this work while I traveled to the beautiful island Procida, in Italy. Procida (Italian pronunciation: [ˈprɔːtʃida]) is one of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. The island is between Cape Miseno and the island of Ischia. With its tiny satellite island of Vivara, it is a comune of the Metropolitan City of Naples, in the region of Campania.
Marina Corricella is the oldest village of Procida. Characteristic, beautiful and romantic, arranged in an amphitheater on the sea and surrounded by nets lying on the dock, this small fishing village is so peaceful. The smell of the sea, the narrow streets, unique architecture and the total absence of cars makes the Corricella a world apart. The seventeenth-century port is famous and appreciated for its unique architecture: here you can see a tangle of arches, domes, windows, terraces, balconies, staircases and colorful facades that create a complex of buildings quite unique shapes, colors and provision of housing.
