Back to the Piazza Navona right around the solstice
There was heavy rain this afternoon in Civita, so I pulled out my sketchbook and painted this sketch that I had drawn late in the day on my one full day in Rome. I had been to the Pantheon before (remember the wonky jet lag perspective?), and being a true glutton for punishment, I headed to the Piazza Navona to do one last Rome sketch. Yes, I was still groggy with jet lag and it was probably 8pm, but I was determined to make the most of my one day in this beautiful city.
