Together Old in Italy 02
Travel sketch in watercolour and ink
Mt second artwork from the mini series “Togetherness and Loneliness in Italy”… my last post was about an old man/woman couple. Today the Togetherness is more about friendship, two old ladies chatting on a bench in a town park in Lucca, , Tuscany. And obviously they have a very enthusiastic conversation, probably telling each other some dirty secrets judging by the face expressions…
In this motif I was especially attracted by the contrast between the colours of the background and the black and white colours of the woman clothes. Also by the contrast between the darkness of the clothes and the lightness of the faces…
Well, it was again not easy to make this sketch, I had to be quick, and in the heat of the moment I forgot to take some photograph to refer to it later… but well, I think I could render good enough the impression of the scene. In fact what i wanted to show here is that ageing can still be fun… at least in Italy.. and among women!
