The small town of Manarola in Northern Italy becomes a massive coloring book in this mixed media art that features a sketch of a faceless man coloring the historic buildings on top of a cliff. To create an impression that the character has more structures left to paint, Cataudella ingeniously changed the color of the rightmost portion of the town to black and white, adding an extra texture to the artwork in the process.
