As the repercussions of the Covid-19 virus impact on every imaginable walk of life simultaneously across the world, I can’t deny feeling quite overwhelmed!
The trials and tribulations of my watercolour painting seem rather insignificant at the moment, so I’m finding it difficult to work up the enthusiasm or the sense of purpose to write that much, so I apologise for this week’s brevity.
I painted this scene of a cafe in Bologna purely because I liked the image and thought it could make a good subject for a painting.
Purely coincidentally, it was done at the same time that Italy was ordering the closure of all cafes/bars/restaurants and other social spaces.
I hope that everyone is able to take care of themselves and their nearest and dearest, as well as keeping an eye out for friends and neighbors that may be particularly vulnerable at this time.
