This is a pencil and watercolour sketch I did in Florence, Italy in April this year 2016. It is 16.8 cm deep and 11.8cm wide. So relatively small. Florence is my favourite foreign city. I have visited many times. On this occasion I travelled alone with the excess desire of sketching without distraction. Of course there were distractions as Florence is a vibrant city. But as a 66 year old retiree, this was a "bucket list" item and I did manage to return home with a good folio of work.This was actually my last sketch for this period and I took artist licence to include myself carrying my bag and stool.
Beautiful! Love that you included yourself.
Oh, so inspiring....love the forms and color....you should be so proud!!!
A lovely sketch of this scene in Florence, nice structure and depth reached and alignment ie shutters, arch and pale blue contrasts, well done!
