Me too, I think it's amazing, came across the top photo quite by chance and looked up the town.  I was blown away.

The tiny streets remind me of Zaragosa, Spain, in the Pyrenees, without the sea of course.

It's the colours for me Quill, I just love colour.   My paint palette is bright and I use metallics as well, I might do a painting based on those.

Just hope it's not one like the eagle flying, when I got half way through and thought 'I'm never going to paint another feather as long as I live' lol

It did, the feeling was 'not another bloody feather' lol, but I was determined to finish it, as it started out to mean freedom!

I'd love to be able to sit and paint
Not sure I'd be much good

I can draw a perfect heart and I draw flowers quite well but that's about it cheers

Practise, practise is all it is, I look at the ones I did when I started and they were awful.  And if I have a few months without painting, when I start again the first one I throw away lol

Might give it a go one day.
I keep thinking I'll buy myself a camera and go round taking pics, I love black and white pictures of "a working day in a city" kind of thing.

Home decorating. Magnolia is a popular colour for people who don't know what colour to use. I prefer ivory.

It means Quill, that Stormee is trying to imply I am not an artist, whereas many of you have seen some of my paintings, in fact we have been discussing the one of an eagle soaring that you commented on.  On the same vein he tried to imply I was lying about my daughter dying.   Nice eh.

I enjoyed that photo for all of the vibrant colors and the clarity of that sea water --- lovely. It'd be a wonderful place to visit and I'm able to close my eyes and just imagine the aroma of those close net homes during a family meal time. But the down side for me is just that - those close net {reach out and touch the house next to you} crowded location gives me the goosebumps and stirs my claustrophobia to annoying levels.
Having a father that built homes/remodeled them --- these vistas always make me think about; WOW, look at all those high risers to paint a different color --- and how does one go about choosing their own unique preferred color? LOL

Looks like the Tobormory of Italy. Stuffing. Would love to spend a weekend wandering around, soaking up the sun, sights and colours ,filling my boots on great Italian cuisine.
Knowing me,I would get bored after 3 days though.

I love Tobormory...



My family's home is on the back side of the island, St John's Parrish.  The hotel is up on the hill above the red chimney, and I've spent many hours in the pub there.  But I think sassy's pictures are even more colorful.

Just been reading that they are limiting the number of tourists who can visit on any one day, anyone can go, but only so many a day because of the narrow roads etc.
