A new drawing and watercolour of one of the colourful villages on the Cinque Terre coast of NW Italy.
Here is my line and wash of Riomaggiore, which is probably the largest of the Cinque Terre villages, at the southern end of this area. The coast here is typically very rocky with steep slopes and what used to be traditional fishing villages perched against narrow inlets in the cliffs.
They do still fish from Riomaggiore, with a small fleet of open boats which are typically dragged ashore and kept above the harbour.
I guess the Cinque Terre is quiet again, with the tourists gone and just the sea for company. Hopefully the fishermen can still go out and make a living in these quieter days.
