about this painting:
HARBOR OF CORSICA
A part of Corsica in your house
Corsica is one of the biggest islands in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the most beautiful regions of France. If you want to acquire an oil painting devoted to some bright tourist destination, let it be Corsica. It deserved this honor! Looking at the painting of Leonid Afremov, we can easily guess that he is also of the same opinion. The diversity of colors above the coastal town looks like joyful, astonishing fireworks. Night town faces the sea and multiple lights in the windows shine like small lighthouses that can be seen from the ships passing by. There are a lot of boats and ships in the haven.
Tourists are amazed about special scent of clear air that is filled with pine freshness, transparency of the sea and its multiple offerings that influenced Corsican cuisine. It is known for diverse seafood. The dishes are prepared of sea cocks, crabs, lobsters, shrimp, sea urchins (real delicacy).
Try local sheep or goat cheese and famous chestnut dessert. Delicious cuisine of Corsica is worth special praise. After visiting this place, you will say like Napoleon: "I’ll recognize Corsica by its smell with my eyes closed".
When you see such places, you may want to take paints and palette and start painting. Even beginners can’t resist temptation. If you want to try as well, the lessons of oil painting for beginners can be found online.
Popular travelling destination
There are many mountains in the regions and some of them are quite high. The highest is about 2.7 thousand meters. The island is unique because there are many rivers on the island. Thousands kilometers of coastline and 300 km of first-class beaches are at your disposal. So it is great to come and have rest here.
This beautiful island is one of the most popular holiday destinations in France and annually attracts more than 2.5 million people, which is almost 8 times higher than the population of the island. The coastal cliffs with granite peaks you can see in Corsica give special charm to the landscape.
It is interesting to learn more about the history of the island. It was simply purchased from Genoa in 1768. In spite of more than two centuries of French rule, little has changed in the life of the island that still maintains a close relationship of Corsicans with the inhabitants of the Italian peninsula, for instance:
· Baroque churches,
· Numerous fortresses,
· Catholic rituals,
· Typical cuisine
· Corsican language that is evidently closely related to the Tuscan dialect of Italian.
