The Colosseum from the north.
When drawing in a new location, the temptation is to draw the obvious things: the big sites and tourist attractions.
However, the priority has to be somewhere comfortable to sit: away from too many crowds, and preferably where no one can stand behind you watching. Then I draw whatever’s in front of me. This often means that I end up drawing something unexpected, that I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
But wherever you sit in Rome, you find yourself in front of some important world-famous, jaw-dropping, historical monument.
And as a bonus, the sun shines, even in the middle of November.
