Down the path, on the back side of Montone, Italy sits a church...an ancient church.
That in itself was enough to pique my interest, and I sketched it several times.
I even set up with my watercolors and painted it from the side (at the time, the most interesting angle) several times.
The area was shady, and had a bench and table, so it was convenient enough and comfortable enough to spend lots of time painting and drawing.
What intrigued me most was that the back side was in virtually impenetrable undergrowth, with old debris and rocks blocking my way.
Like I said, I was intrigued. Feeling adventurous, I managed to navigate the debris with little personal harm, and came upon this wonderful door in the back. There were pigeons warbling around. The place was magic.
Once again, painted with only red, yellow and blue.
