“ Art has the power to enhance our emotional state, offering succour in addition to delighting, stimulating, informing and, above all, bringing joy” (from David Hockney, the arrival of Spring, Normandy, 2020)

This sentence from the latest publication of the great English painter perfectly sums up the spirit of my travel notebooks.
These are for me a place where I can pour out my emotions, where I can delight myself and, above all, seek and find joy.
Here you can find some of the illustrations from the last notebook: The Atlantic Coast, 2021. Made after this last year of changes and difficult times, they are the reflection of an Atlantic coast devoid of human footprint, wild, full of trees and wild sounds.
