Casa Bianca, Civita Castellana
Oil on panel, 12" x 24". © Fergus A Ryan, 2013
This is the house from which Corot painted some of his famous views of Civita Castellana on the Grand Tour in the 1820s. The painting was executed en plein air, and so is looser than my usual detailed 'slow' style.
I have been participating in the Jerusalem Studio School master class programme in Italy under the direction of Israel Hershberg.
