Some of the upper dwellings seemed abandonned, or certainly neglected, with shutters broken or missing; but other apartamenti in this palazzo seemed well cared for, with their potted plants and lace curtains. I was fascinated by the flat-topped tree that looked so much like an umbrella in the small courtyard below. A week or so later, tables decked out with checkered cloths appeared beneath the tree and the place became a pizzeria.
(I used grunge brushes downloaded from the internet, as well as a texture from Shadowhouse Creations and a colour tint from the Coffeeshop Blog, as well as textures taken from my own Calabria Series).
