Forgotten, but not gone!

Here are several sketches I completed in Italy earlier this year. They were forgotten in my post-trip blues!  Or maybe because I was so busy riding my new scooter during the summer!
Anyway, I'm posting them together - there may be more, but they will be sketched from photos, which, as you may know, are not as much fun as sketching in person. Some of the "joie de vie" may be missing.
There is so much beauty in this tiny little corner of Italy - I'm sure I need to return as soon as possible!
Oh, I just noticed - the art quote for today is:
"Every picture shows a spot with which the artist has fallen in love. "-Alfred Sisley
How true is that for this post? Hmm?

lovely! what a nice set to encounter on a rainy thursday in london. I so so know that thing of having holiday sketches I mean to catch up on later! I think yours here are pretty damn impressively prolific (and atmospheric too, of course!)

Why thank you Tanja! I'm heading back there shortly for a much needed break from this harsh winter!
