July has been a wonderfull time for my artistic life. I had the pleasure to spend two weeks in Italy. We first decided to spend few days in Roma, before going to Tuscany.
I knew I would see a lot of art but I didn´t expect so much. During two week I felt like a kid locked in a toy store: running everywhere, with so much to see, so much to do and all of it just for us.
Because our time was limited we knew we had to select our visits. We decided to focus our attention on art "in situ", like churches instead of museums (except the vatican museum of course where we spent eight hours!).
We thought it was a nice way to approach the history of the city by seing the paintings, sculptures and architectures wich are still in their original places.
The rest of the time we walked in the city discovering all the wonders and the living way of roman people. We´ve been always welcome in all places.
The temperature was extremly hot as you can imagine (35 to 37degre celsius) and some afternoon we had to stop for one or two hours to rest a little bit. That´s the moment I took for doing those sketches I would like to show you today.
They were done on moleskine sketchbook with a 6B pencil.
Many times I was thinking about the nineteen century artist who came to Italy to build their art education. Camille Corot was one of them and I couldn´t stop thinking about him when I was
admiring this city.
