Italy ... 2011

Well, here they are, the few presentable pages of my wonderful summer dream. I WILL  RETURN SOMEDAY - with better painting skills hopefully- I've realised how atrocious mine are during this trip.  Sketchbooks were of different sizes and the smaller ones were sooo much fun to draw in!  Will definitely think about getting those in the future- I find that they help me think about space better.

A small sample of how many sugar packets I consumed along with coffee..... the sugar packaging grew into a small collection.   :D

More food packaging...  cioccolates! 

Some inks/watercolours that we had to do during the trip - honestly I regretted buying that Bristol paper, hated the texture and lack of grip. My nonsense pad of old watercolour paper would be better.  /: Plus it was too big to work with - basically not enough time to capture everything I wanted. fail

 Bought the long watercolour sketchbooks for Vencie - but didn't paint as much as I'd hoped too.  The most magical thing would honestly be the interlocking waterways and bridges, the whole city on the sea bit.... other than that I felt that the tourist attractions were overrated compared to Florence. It spoilt me so. One example being gelato.  Sighhh. 


  1. Really Like that last painted page before the watercolored ones=O and alot of other pages i remember seeing ;D

  2. Thanks! Nothing compared to yours, I think. :D Really wished we had more time to paint.
