So today I post a bit of my process, which I plan to do often on this blog in the next two months here, as I also try and figure out how to sketch in Civita where there are no right angles and nothing is parallel!
I think it's getting a little better as the jet lag eventually wears off and I find my footing. The reward for finishing: a caffe gelato for supper...
|Blocking out the drawing into basic shapes first, then I start on the left side and add detail and heavier linework...starting on the left because I'm right handed and don't want all the lines to end up on the back of my hand!|
|This is the completed line drawing, I added notes about the architectural history that I'm learning. This piazza was an Etruscan and Roman forum and is still used today as a meeting place and for events (even weddings!)|
|Done! Off to get a gelato!!|
