A southern cliff
The weather was gorgeous, people were even bathing at sea (mid-march!), the sun shone on the pinkish-greyish rocks and the sea was rippled. Maritime pines wore dramatic, contorted poses just like Canova's Daphne, jutting out towards the void.
Sitting on the ridge, I tackled this 20x50 cm. watercolour on Magnani "narrow" pad; quite happy with the colours, but for composition's sake I would have preferred the pine further down.
