Miss Doodle's baroque fashion show and baroque patterns
You already have seen this picture of the benedictine cloister, the first one in this travel journal, I just added three sketches of a nun's habits
This is what you see when you look up in the St. Salvator Cathedral, an impressive dome with wonderful paintings in the four corners
The Rotunda under the Church of St. Michael, looking mysterious and bathed in a very special light...

Fabulous painting. Thanks for showing the close-ups too. Miss Doodle, your secretary has become a master watercolor artist. These are just magical the way they swirl in and out of each other. The way the colors all differ yet work together. And I agree, Miss Doodle's life seems very Cinderella like. Thank you for sharing this.

I love it, my favourite is the fashion show (the dresses) and the dome and the kites round the church !!! It's already beautiful with these colours but can imagine what it is with brighter tones. ;o)

Hi Andrea,

I really like the ceiling of St. Salvator... I'm always taken by symmetry like this in churches...

And all the pieces together seem to come together for a good trip?

Hope these words find you well..
