A lovestruck Romeo, in Sorrento

At the end of April I was lucky enough to have a weekend in Sorrento, Italy, with my sisters.
The weather was a bit iffy so I did not go sketching but I took some photos.
We spent a wonderful day exploring Pompeii, and in the evening back in Sorrento I spotted this Tavern Allegra, down a quiet alley that looked straight out of Pompeii.

I took a photo and worked from it when I got back. Imagining my Romeo by his Vespa and my Juliet on the balcony, about to put her washing out, and remembering all the wonderful colours on the walls at Pompeii.
