Impressions of Italy: Domes everywhere

Everywhere I looked I saw domes. With that gorgeous blue-green patina. It was almost impossible to look up and not see a dome. Either right by me.

Or far in the distance. Like in this vista at the Roman Forum.

I never tired of drawing those domes. Sketched from the top of the Spanish Steps in Rome one evening.

And then again a second day.

And again at the Roman Forum, with my fun rainbow pencil.

In Venice from the train Station, the majestic San Simeone Piccolo church.

But of all the incredible domes I saw, one really stood out and I sketched it over and over. That dome, coming up next.

    They are all so beautiful. I love your art – it’s beautiful. The one above the colored pencils drawing is done without lines?? Just paint? I wish I could paint without lines and have it look like something. I really like that one as well as all of them. Thanks so much for sharing. 🎨

    • Laura, yes, without line: I find I take longer when I work this way, but it really helps me see shape and volume instead of contour. You can do it: but you know that already. it just takes practice 🙂
