Piazza della Cisterna, also known for hosting the “gelato world champion” ice cream store! I tasted it after the sketch! One more of Khan sketches, on his 1928-29 trip.
One month ago, Drawing from the boat, in two moments: first when it was aproaching and Amalfi and then leaving to Positano.
I did this sketch last September at the astonishing San Salvatore, a romanesque-style, former basilica church located in Spoleto, Umbria. The church-keeper told me he would close the church in 5 minutes when I was thinking on making the sketch, so I had to do a really fast one!
Back to black and white drawings . Capri, while waiting for the boat. People constantly interrupted me to ask for informations about the ferry service ! The light was amazing when I started drawing! 1 hour sketch, uni-ball on Caballo paper.
Rio Della Misericordia, a quiet canal, next to Campo de Ghetto Novo.
San Giorgio Maggiori, another of Palladio’s masterwork.
North facade of the Basilica, Piazza San Marco. Another point of view done by Louis Khan when he was in Venice.
Another view of beautiful Amalfi, this time from the boat.
Loved this little alleyway on the back of Chiesa Nuova: full of wires, dirty colors and contrasting forms and shadows.
Marina Grande or Sorrento’s beach: loud music, totally packed, a bit smelly, but a funny, colorful and eclectic atmosphere.
