Gatehouse and Chapel Lunzjata Valley
Lunzjata[Lunzeeyarta] Valley, is the pride of Gozo. Green and lush all year as it is fed by several springs, and forms the most important intensive farming area on this tiny island. One of my favourite places to paint plein air. I painted this scene before my fellow sketchers arrived. The little chapel was originally built as a hunting lodge by the Knights of St John. The gatehouse, partially seen on the left, is used by an Arts council. I painted this mainly wet into wet, really enjoying the speed of execution!
