up numerous sketches from the past few weeks. I prefer to do an entire sketch in
the field, but it's often problematic to draw and paint at one sitting on site. So today,
I added color, scanned, etc. to a whole collection of images, clearing the way
for me to dig into the final weeks of working on my Gabriel Prize project.
Going back in time, here are a few more sketches from Civita di Bagnoregio~~
thanks so much again to NIAUSI for providing the opportunity to work in this
amazing place. I look forward to next year's workshop!
|Interior of the really lovely Chiesa San Donato.|
I really like this sketch, click on the image to see it larger. I used cerulean blue under the
arches, then at the end glazed with cobalt blue--I love the cool color.
|Stairs to the wonderful NIAUSI|
|Dramatic entry to Civita through the Porta Santa Maria, looking|
to the hills and tuffa beyond. Slowly learning to capture the colors.
The secret was raw umber...I'm really happy with the watercolor
on the gate.
|Gate to Tony's Garden.|
|Quick sketch as a storm brews in the valley on the last day, looking toward Lubriano.|
