Urban Sketchers (St Peters Rome)

Posted by Nik Chinook on Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Surprisingly, I didn't find much sketching inspiration in Rome.  I think it's because everything you draw comes out looking like something you've seen a million times before.  I had the same experience in Venice; I loved the city but painting or drawing it always resulted in yet another cliche´ picture that made me yawn.



  That said, they were short visits so I guess if I spent proper time there I should be able to find more original and interesting approaches.
Anyway, here is a load of columns and a dome.... yawwwwnnnn. :)
