Painting in Turin

 

 

 

 

My friend, artist Maura Banfo, lives in Turin. And I thought it would be a good idea to spend a summer 2015 painting there. The summer before Maura told me was very rainy. This one on the contrary there was a wave of heat in all Europe. Even in northern Italy it was suffocating. Lucky for me, the main work I painted during that time was a composition of eight small canvases, from a view under a bridge, Ponte Balbo, protected by its shadow. I lived near Parco del Valentino and walked every morning there with my painting equipment.
