A couple of my favourites today. Beach in Capri as it says on the bottom of the image on the left, and on the right, some ruins drawn in Pompeii - which is an amazing place and I was looking forward to actually sitting in it and drawing something. These gardens were perfect as it felt like a city healing itself after hundreds of years: an opulent, flowering garden amidst the ruined columns.

While I was in Italy, I bought a Moleskine watercolour sketchbook...it's the best sketchbook I have ever bought! A landscape book, I found it difficult to not draw across a double page spread. I was also able to adapt a style I had been experimenting with at the time, which is to add black ink lines on top of the watercolour drawing.
These were drawn poolside in our hotel in Sorrento!

Here's a sketchbook study of a church facade in Umbria. We were traveling back from a vineyard and stopped off on the way back to the hotel for some insect repellant. Strangely, there was a convenience store and a chemist next to a huge church! It was an unusual sight especially in the middle of fields!

...weird looking guy walked passed my window and had to sketch him!
Turns I was right to suspect.. this has just resulted in a little argument and a fight outside my house!
