A demo sketch from this morning's watercolor class at Roger Williams National Memorial -did you know? -Joyce told us this, she who taught in Providence at the Veazie St school for over 20 years.- Its the smallest national park in the US. Fitting given that we are the smallest state in the Union.
Looking down a little roman cobblestone alley with a newsstand in the distance. (The barber came out and told me the painting was good.) Yesterday at the Piazza Venezia we saw a man riding a motor scooter with a cat riding on his shoulders.
Traveling in Rome with my family. This is a view from the roof of our apartment (near the Campo do Fiori). Made in hast yesterday evening-I tried for the general shapes, colors and values. The many rooftop gardens account for all that green. Wide format sketchbook: 15x30cm.
12"x12", oil on canvas. Between trips right now, preparing for the summer, finishing up the school year, I have hardly seen the inside of the studio. It is remarkable that there could be something on the easel to work on but today there were the lemons!
