|Spectacular view from my hotel room, this was last |
night's moon shining on the famous Duomo,
after all the crowds were gone.
The sketch on the far right was my favorite of the day...I love that yellow sky and
how the paints dried with some texture...
|Practicing in the Old Quad on campus.|
|Another warm up sketch before the workshop, in the Old Quad. I used the front arch as a frame,|
in my Pentalic sketchbook.

|Me, doing a demo for the workshop...|
|Day 2, Watercolor at outdoor tables on campus...|
|Some examples of the many beautiful sketches done by this group! My goal is for them to not draw like me, but to draw in their style but BETTER for having a better understanding of perspective and color.|
|Very quick sketch while on my way to the ARUP offices to give a lecture. This is the Royal Exhibition Hall...|
|Great turnout for the Sunday morning open sketch crawl!!!|
|My sketchcrawl sketch of the Old Arts building Tower.|
