Rainy day at Limassol Castle Watercolor by Savva

It started raining in the morning about 8 o’clock. It only lasted for an hour but it was enough to have most of the city roads semi flooded. By eleven the sun was out with cobalt blue skies. Just like nothing had happened. I love the first rains here. The subtle smell of earth mixed with a blend of thyme and sage. I wish someone would come up with a fragrance like that.

I started painting just after the heavy drops stopped and the sky had a warm gray tone. Hope you like it.Limassol-Castle-savva
