Description of my way of painting :

 

I approached watercolor because I like its transparency, its water effects, its richness of tones and shades and the immediacy with which I can bring on paper my vision of reality.
In my work I am inspired to landscape genre of the Impressionists and the Macchiaioli and, in particular, to the works of the Roman watercolorists of the 19th century as Franz Ettore Rosler and Orlando Carlandi.
My painting style is constantly changing because I aspire to seek a painting made of special atmospheres and lights.
