venice part 2: basking in the sunshine
I drew this scene standing halfway up on the Rialto Bridge. I remember thinking at the time that life could get no more perfect. There I was doing the things I love the most: drawing and traveling. It was also a beautiful day. The sun was dancing on the water and I was soaking in its warmth. It felt like spring.
Two American guys stood beside me for a bit while I was sketching. Normally I don't feel comfortable having someone watching over my shoulder, but on this day I didn't mind at all. It felt good to be able to talk and sketch. I felt free.
