sunset at porto badisco in pastelsThe limestone of the landscape here caught the last of the sun light as the sun disappeared and the gloom of the night rapidly descended over the sea. I sketched this in pastels from the terrace of the farm where I was staying. It was a magical moment that will long remain in my memory. This is what sketchig does - it fixes a passing moment of beauty in you mind for ever.

4x7" soft pastel.
