Painting: Watercolor and Ink on Paper.

Gubbio is a fascinating town in Umbria, said to be one of Noahs first twelve cities, it is also the place where St Francis spoke to a wolf, who was terrorising the residents. Each May there is a famous mountain race where three teams carry 25 foot totems to the basilica above.

The main landmarks around Gubbio are depicted including the ancient Roman amphitheater, the churches of saints Francesco, Ubaldo and Pietro as well as the magnificent Palazzo dei Consoli.

The painting is a sister to the one of Assisi with the sky following on from each other. It is painted with a lack of linear perspective as a way of exploring differing ways of depicting depth.

The style is a modern interpretation of the Medieval Gothic work of such artists as Giotto and Martini. Both were active in this region some 700 plus years ago and the painting employs a pallet typical of the era.
