  • Less is more
    Since I began to paint consistently, on an almost daily basis, I decided to study the Old Masters from a technical point of view, and besides the grisaille technique (see this previous article) I was attracted by the use of a particular palette which seemed to be extremely useful to mix fleshtones and create harmonious …
  • All I want for Christmas is….a drawing!!
    Are you unpacking all your Christmas decorations? Are you already looking for a special, unexpected and original present for your sister, mother, or best friend? Do you think that perfumes, bottles of wine and foulards are the most boring presents ever (as I do, LOL)? You would love to imprint on paper you best smile …
  • Stardust and magic

  • Who seeks, finds
    If I were told, six months ago, that I would have become a member of an art collective, I would have never believed. I would have looked at my interlocutor with curious eyes and silently smiled…maybe adding a sentence like ‘Wish you were right, but at the moment I feel like the most lonely boat …
  • Heavy sky, colourful life
    In this fading summer, the ordinary vivid blue Italian sky has the color of steel today. Blades of grass are drying, wishing drops of rain to fall from above. And when the grey, grave sky is so tremendously near to the soil, laying like a blanket on my thoughts, I feel my head heavy, and …
