The morning and the evening states at Sicilia pass away momentary and during day the sun is burning so that the grass on the slopes faced to the sun burns out very soon. We had something like a painting drill before breakfast: we went to this slope and were painting the morning study for a hour and a half, whilst the merciless sun hadn’t come up. It made the shadows run while everything around was changing colors.

To visit Sicilia with him I was invited by Vsevolod Olegovich Romankov. Besides he is an artist, he is working as deputy director at the school №1188 were I studied and he is teaching art there. Perhaps I can’t say that he was my direct tutor but I am very grateful to him for his support and advice, which he gave and is still giving to me. I am grateful to him for this journey also, it happened to be unforgettable for me. Giant cactuses, juicy blue sky, awful heat, amazing views, fig, which we ate from the trees near the hotel, faucet with the mineral water, the rocks in layers, various and bright color of water, delicious ice cream, the capuchin’s catacombs – these are my impressions.
