Watercolour from Catania

I went back to Catania for 10 days to pack things and empty my apartment. The photographer Fabio Randone had contacted me long ago and asked me if he could make pictures while I paint.
So since I don't know exactly when I will come back we decided to do it during this time.
It was a very emotional experience, I really felt connected.
I choose a view I had post here as a sketch before. Maybe some of you remember it.

you can see some pictures of the making-of in my blog

Your stuff is always wonderful Omar and it's nice to see Catania so beautifully realised in your watercolours.

Wherever you go you really get a feel of the place in your paintings. Fantastic. :)
