Inflatable slide

It was a late summer afternoon when I made this at Giardini Margherita in Bologna. The inflatable slide is, of course, appreciated by children of all ages. A crowd of them get it under assault from morning to night on Saturdays and Sundays!

Torrita di Siena

On my way home at the end of my last summer holiday I had to stop few hours in a village called Torrita di Siena. The new side of that is ordinary while the old appeared like a Middle Ages ghost village. It was too hot and too little shady to sketch anything so I moved to the edge of it where I found a WWI Memorial in a little park. The park bench was confortable, shadows were fresh, mosquitos were hungry. I had to sketch quickly. Colour was added later. I get to the car just on time to avoid a fine for no parking. I thanked mosquitos.

Minutes later I made this other one.

Talamone - Tuscany

A very fast sketch in a very hot day in a place called Talamone. Here the Tyrrenian sea is absolutely transparent and full of little and medium fishes!

Le Marze Camp

They really didn't know how to fold away their little tent. Fortunately they still had the manufacturer's instructions.
