The next few pages of my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2012. This is an old plant container in the grounds of an old villa, the long grass is a figment of my imagination!
My theme is 'Encyclopedia of..' and it feels as if it's going to be an encyclopedia of secret places, perhaps not the ones you would usually find or notice if you visited Sicily?
There are plenty of these old balconies about, but you have to look up while you're walking along the road. (This can be unsafe given the state of the roads and pavements)
I've been using a small amount of watercolour on the flimsy sketchbook paper, which causes some crinkling and the paper feels a bit crispy now!
