Description Portofino is perhaps one of the most admired towns in italy. It represents the typical italian dream scenery, we all know from many movies. We have a small old town, crooked streets, nestling on a steep hill. The perfect version of it even has access to the sea, a small harbour. Portofino has all if it, and it even has no eyesores from the last few decades, it looks untouched, a wonderful ensemble.Portofino was founded by the romans in the 9th century BC, and the name means 'Dolphin Harbour'.So there we could tell a lot of history, but now back to our newest painting.We catched the calm atmosphere, mornings hectic has already gone, so it is time to relax. In the foreground you can see the capitano of a small vessel. We dont know, if he is waiting, probably not, or if he is just having a rest. In the background you can see the seafront of portofino, with all the small shops, cafes and ristorantes. But now, sit back and enjoy the painting.
M Bleichner, Munich, Bavaria Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement We from artshop77 are promoting art from 2 painters, two creative souls, which are focused on transfering memories into art, views into paintings, perspectives into color. We both grew up in the countryside of Bavaria, Germany and live now near Munich. Our inspirations come from trips and journeys - Memories and special places which we then transform to canvas.
