The amazingly preserved Temple of Neptune at Paestum. Piranesi was here in 1777 and described it as “surprising by its magnificence and greatness”.

    Lovely… normally I adore your beautiful watercolour, but this is such a lovely way to capture the architecture and the impact of the sun.

    • Thanks Tylara! I’m glad you mention it, because the impact of the Sun on the building was exactly what I wanted to express!
