Town in Sicily

This painting recalls a hot day in Sicily in 2007.  I had been walking  along a deserted road in unrelenting heat…. heading for a monastery which turned out to be too far away to reach that day. Turning back with my companion to retrace our footsteps to a bus stop, the small town ahead shimmered in the breathless air, dry, still and empty in the afternoon sun.

About helenprout

Helen Prout is a painter who lives and works in the Cotswolds. She originally studied Fine Art at Liverpool where she worked mainly in oils; these days she prefers to use mixed media to explore colour, texture and pattern inspired by landscape and other subjects. During the past eighteen years she has shown her work regularly in solo and joint exhibitions and as part of Oxford Artweeks. Her paintings hang in private collections throughout the UK and some also feature on greetings cards available from the artist. Two years ago Helen changed her name from Barbara, which is the name or initial signed on work completed before 2010.
