Many thanks to Daisy for inspiring me to draw so much on my trip to Rome… we have always been very productive at sketching when we travel together. In this post, I’ve included photos of one of our many dinner outings.
On my last night in Rome, Daisy and I headed over to Trastevere–stopping for a glimpse of the basilica (dedicated to Santa Maria, where mass was in session) before heading on to our favorite dinner spot. As is generally the case when Daisy and I are traveling with architecture students, we brought our sketchbooks along to discuss.
I’ve included photos of Daisy’s beautiful work, that caught the attention of our waitress. She studied every page!
Daisy’s area of expertise is architectural representation, as is evident in her drawings! Mine, on the other hand, is educational research… that’s what I presented to Daisy’s students in the lecture I delivered.
As a result of our exchange, I woke up inspired to draw on my last day in Rome.
It was hot, hot, hot, though. I had to sketch quickly to keep ahead of the heat! By the afternoon, the sky opened up and the rain poured down. Thankfully our fore bearers built plenty of sheltered spots in Rome that have lovely views! I made three sketches on my parting day–two are shown below.
