marina piccola, capri

Arches CP 300 gsm, 9" x 12".

this was a rest day for us. we got up late, shuffled around capri looking at shops, then went back to the hotel to relax. i painted this view of the marina piccola, the little marina on the south side of the island, from our terrace.

the marina is shadowed by an enormous chunk of limestone, pocked and gouged with rockslides and caverns. i outlined the rock in charcoal to give it weight, and emphasized the contrast with the dark sea.

Tough to make these comps work, IMO, and this one does quite well...could be the leaning attitude going in the opposite direction from the expected. Fantastic wave line lower left.
