Urban sketching in Venice
Venice is so very visually stimulating I feel ashamed I did so little sketching there. I took a load of photos but, as we know, snapping is no substitute for sketching when it comes to getting really involved in a scene.
One reason I fell short was that I found a book of fabulous Venetian sketches by Fabrice Moireau, and felt such a novice in comparison…
Here’s a selection. They are well worth studying for the underlying drawing (especially of buildings and water – of course!) and easy watercolour technique.
