Italy


The Italy of my Imagination


This is a three part tag which starts with my luggage label and a description of Venice.
(A Darkroom Door rubber stamp)



The next layer is a stamped image of Venice on tracing paper.
(Again a Dark Room Door stamp)





The final layer is the Italy of my imagination.

This is a pen and ink and watercolour painting I did of how I imagined a modern city of Italy would look.


I would love to go to Italy to immerse myself in its culture and art.

One day perhaps I will get there.

Have a wonderful and sunny Tuesday!
