painted on location - Monday 8 Feb 2010
A better title for this could be, La voce del silenzio , (The voice of stillness) . A very atmospherical rendering of a dull situation, I would say. Saturated soft pastel hues, a sense of solitude, ample space, breath of fresh cold damp air, the sound of the waves caressing the sands, seagulls floating in the air. Who needs to see all that mass of steel on the horizon anyway (Europort, world headquarters of Shell Oil).
For your viewing pleasure, a detail.
