While in Rome in early 2019, I used some of my spare time to sketch the Colosseum. I visited the Colosseum earlier that day, and its magnificent beauty and history inspired me. I don’t usually draw sketches from a phone photo, so this was a new and welcome art experience for me.
Often, I plan, and then spend long periods of time on drawings or paintings. However, considering how happy I was with the finished sketch below, drawing quick sketches will become a more regular occurrence. So now, when preparing for a flight, I always ensure to pack a sketch pad, some pencils, an eraser and my mini watercolour set!
