We woke up to news that a powerful earthquake hit central Italy about 100 miles from Rome. About 125 people were killed in a few small towns that were devastated by the quake. My prayers go out for the victims and their families.
Today I went to La Salute, a beautiful church here in Venice. After saying a few prayers I sat down to sketch a bit of the interior. I bought a Fabriano softcover sketchbook the other day and used it for this sketch.
Then I went outside to sketch the exterior. It is too large for me to do the entire building so I focused on the top of the buildIng.
Later in the day I sketched some people at an outdoor restaurant and people walking be. I think my people directly in ink has gotten a little rusty.
