Sketching another day in Rome
This day in Rome was better than yesterday for some sketching. Yes, definitely sketching or living or tripping or whatever in a cooler temperature is the choice. Today we started the day very slow, and we went first in a great Rome Museum that I love a lot: Galleria Nazionale di Arte Moderna. Yes! It is also in one of the greatest park in Rome, Parco Borghese so what else? I ever loved this park since I was going in Rome while I had no hair on my chest…
Going in this museum, visiting it with calm and relaxing, having all the necessary to take a sketch or two or thousand with the air conditioning and not so much people is again very inspiring. And that was! We first visited all the masterpieces in it from Klimt to Gauguin, from Canova to Rodin, from Duchamp to De Chirico, and having also a blast with my friend Andy Warhol in good company with Pollock, Basquiat and Keith Haring. Yeah, great. A good source of mental battery charge and inspiration. Sorry Andy but when I stopped in the middle of your exhibition I did this sketching… Irony also please forgive me!
The show must go on and after visiting all the museum in every piece and every space included the Cafeteria to have a break we turned back on some masterpieces.
And so started my biggest effort of the day, on a wonderful sculpture of white polished white marble that was showing all its power in my eyes. Gaetano Cellini is great. I took this sketching exercise slowly with no rush while my love was seated on my back admiring other masterpieces. I was sketching on the Moleskine Sketchbook. This time I was sketching with the watercolor pocket sketching kit of Winsor&Newton.
I continued with other sketching on other masterpieces Iater and did other doodles in the park while relaxing a lot and enjoying one of the best moments in my life, as also we finished our evening in a nice restaurant today but this is another story.
