The piazza was packed with people and it was late in the day, but I pulled out my three-legged stool, Pentalic sketchbook and mechanical pencil from last summer in Paris and claimed a spot. The view was often blocked by the crowds, but it was fun to hear them say "WOW" as they rounded the corner behind me.
I now see some really funky things in this sketch, which I will attribute to the extreme jet lag :) The pediment has shifted to the left and the buildings on the left look more than a little wobbly.
But it's a start...after the first pancake (we toss that one, right?), hopefully the next one will be better and you'll see these improve!
After this sketch, it was off to the Piazza Navona for a second one, followed by a gelato.
Benvenuto a Roma!
|First sketch in Rome, ouch, the jet lag shows!|
