I always promised myself I’d get round to archiving my old sketchbooks, and this Easter weekend has given me the opportunity to do so. I’ve got about five years of stuff in the attic to go through, so that might take a while but to start, here’s a selection of the best artwork from my trip to Venice in 2005. Reflecting on some of these quick sketches and overpaints, I’m left wondering how I managed to put pen to paper during that week, which seemed to pass by in a sleep-deprived blur.
This was the view from our hotel. I was stupid enough to neglect noting the exact location
Some of the architecture around the city is amazing
View from the entry to the city of Verona
St Marco's Square
One of the many waterways which permeate the city
Good fun, just wish I could remember more about it!
