Coloring some sketching made in Rome
Today I was not sketching at all, I need to recharge my batteries, but reading good books, having nice music and getting a lot of cuddle from my lovely. But later I was suffering, and my hands were shaking so I colored some quick sketches made in Rome last days of our small vacation. just for the sake of information I don’t have any rule about coloring later.
Sometimes I like, sometime not. When I do the coloring, I just try to not let pass a lot of time because I’m short in memory like a red fish.
So these are some sketching uglies that I colored this late afternoon, just before going to the beach with Her.
This is Piazza Navona from the south side, avoiding all artists (?) that are making cheap portraits. This is the same quick sketch made during night and these are the colors. It’s so difficult to sketch during night or after the light has gone, but I think I have to exercise about that because the good season is got to go.
By the way the orange from the lights and the deep blue, I think I realized the feeling of the moment with this sketching.
But also I colored the statue of Girolamo Savonarola in Piazza Campo de’ Fiori. I sketched standing still, with people around me from the totally drunk to that people who are trying to sell you green lasers and shooting lighting toys in the air. I love them…Even this time I think I realized this quick sketching, I even remember the smell of fried potatoes and porchetta near to me.
But going around means also taking public transportation, big waiting at the bus stops, meeting mad people shaking and shouting at night, or just people commuting to home to have the right rest.
Here two pictures of that feeling, taken day and night.
A suggestion, in Rome is very difficult to sketch during the trip in bus because they are so shaaaaaaky! Streets are bumpy, rail and the drivers are quite rude. Sketching people advised. 🙂 But it’s lovely the same, as I love Rome from the bottom of my heart.
