Drawing on Via Dei Bardi
Monday, September 10th was another beautiful day in Florence. We were positioned a little south of the city center across the Arno on Via Dei Bardi. The aim continues to be defining what is important in observational drawing. Trying to selectively convey something about place using accurate perspective, highlighted by moments of value, while still making drawings that have a quality of clarity and energy; that's a tall order. Wednesday we're hiking farther south heading up toward the Piazzale Michelangelo. It's a bit of a climb, but it offers amazing views of the city. We're all hoping for another beautiful sunny day. Next week, we start painting in the Giardino di Boboli.
