Venice


Even if this is absolutely not the best season to sketch in Venice - there are too much humidity and too much cold both getting stuck to your bones - I couldn't resist the unique atmosphere of the place.

Bologna

I've been living in Bologna for 16 years now but I never sketched in the centre of the city. There was a wonderful atmosphere in Piazza Maggiore and with the Church of San Petronio behind me I sat to sketch Palazzo del Podestà.

Bologna


Next to via Indipendenza, the main street to get to the heart of the city, there is an elevated lane, now open again after a long time, which is part of Giardini della Montagnola. It was the locked gate that drew my attention.

Punta Ala Summer Camp

It's funny to sketch at the beach, and it's easy. The place is so relaxed that no one cares about what you are doing. Even if who you are schetching is just next to you.

Daily Portrait Sketch

Among the Daily Portrait Sketches I made so far, this is definitely one I like very much; and not just because Spencer Tracy was a great actor.
Looking carefully at him I realized that he had a very interesting and expressive face. A very rare face.

Excursion to Rimini


At the end of summer season the beach of Rimini is an incredibly peaceful place, and it's not too far from Bologna. Only one hour drive and you get there.
It was a warm September Sunday when there we went on excursion. Just to get ourself ready for near autumn!

Punta Ala Summer Camp


On the beach next to the Camp there was lot of people to sketch. The Staedtler pencil I wrote about on my yesterday post was excellent tool for the job.

P.S. My Daily Portrait Sketch #107 is now on my Flickr page.

Summer Camp - Punta Ala


Just the day before my summer camp start I found, and I bought, an unusual three colours lead pencil by Staedtler.
'What better chance than vacation to test a pencil!!' I thought.
Very funny to use it provides, in my opinion, a great feeling of summer colours, but it needs a bit of practice. I confess: much more practice than the patience I had!

P.S. On my Flickr page my Daily Portrait Sketches goes on.

Bus Stop

Too much time has gone from my last post! Let start again!


I sketched this looking at a suburb bus stop from 10.50 am to 12.00 pm in a late summer day that rather looked like a deep autumn day because of its colour.
Interesting and funny trying to capture in a very short time, something about people who were there. I was of course in a shelter position!
