The Napoleonic Square in Lucca
Lucca. An open elegant space. I spent a good part of a morning sitting on a bench painting the scene in front of me. I was attracted to the shadows of the archway and the contrast it created next to the umbrellas and trees. I love trees anyway, so to have shadows and trees in one view is a treat. People obviously come and go so one makes the best of shapes when they are stationary. I was entertained by children running across the square blowing bubbles and the odd curious passerby. I remember it being a rewarding experience.
