About this artwork
View through the crowded Via San Gregorio Armeno in Naples, a historic street known for its nativity scene makers, or Presepe. The small, tight street has hundred of shops and nativity workshops. People walk the umbrella-lined street. Dramatic afternoon shadows fall on the buildings and sidewalk. Painted in the studio from sketches done on location; on heavyweight watercolor paper with deckled edges and a white border.
