Coloured pencil & Graphitints
Another sketch I've re-done for my new sketch book. This is a gateway (now bricked up) on the side of VIlla San Marco, a privately owned villa that I pass every day. It has a high wall surrounding it, that just makes me want to have a look inside.
I'm enjoying this project immensely, re-visiting many places and comparing my sketches. I've realised just how many villas and interesting locations there are in this area...enough to keep me going for a long while! I'm learning a lot too as I research the history and local style.
We also have the remains of a fascinating Phoenican village (700 BC) up on the hill, which I've visited many times but have never sketched, so that's on my list too. Watch this space!
