We were in Bologna, Italy, this Easter weekend, re-visting the people and places we used to know when we lived there. It’s a beautiful, historic and vibrant city. It rained, a lot, so I took to using Google street map to find people to draw.
I love it, there’s an endless selection of people and places to draw, each a single moment in time. A conversation. A walk with friends. A meal outdoors. A fight. A kiss. A fall. One day a cold day, another one sunny. In fact, when I drew the old Lady on Via Calzoleria, it was Winter. Then when I panned down to Via Rizzoli, 50 meters away, the season had changed to Summer. Have a look yourself, see if you can find the people I found and sketched. Maybe it’s even you? Give me the names of towns and streets which are familiar to you and maybe I can sketch those too.
