Italy Drawings

Bolgona, Via Rizzoli

These are my drawings from Italy. Mostly piazzas. I found it very pleasant to sit at a cafe or maybe on some steps and draw the piazzas. Towards the end are a bunch of bridges in Venice. Drawing saved Venice for me. I was initially shocked by the hordes and felt bad to be a part of it, but eventually I found a bench to sit and draw Piazza San Marcos and San Giorgio island, and I began to appreciate the city. Later I drew a bunch of the bridges and ignored the crowds taking selfies on them. I missed a lot of the famous sites, but I feel good about what I did see. Venice is amazing, Italy is amazing, I hope to go back as soon as next summer.
