Today's selection is from Santa Catarina and Sao Paolo state, with a foray to Italy.
These are from the first three years of my working in this small format: the colours are muted and the effect is slightly romantic. I was much under the influence of Corot, one of the many wonderful traveler painters of the 19th century (a rich cultural phenomenon almost totally destroyed by photography) and this is most obviously reflected in the, perhaps stereotypical, image from Pompeii.
I sometimes look back over work and think of returning to work in such a style, but I think that would in a creative sense be a mistake, an act of retreat. They do, however, renew my interest in travel, in places and describing the feelings that places evoke.
