14 days, 14 drawings: DAY 1

This summer holiday I decided to go back to Europa after 8 years. My intentions on this excursion was to focus on 2 cities, Roma and Barcelona, and to marinate the city jewels and local scene. On this specific trip I gave myself an assignment of having to do A Drawing a Day. And if I skipped a day, I had to makeup with 2 the following day.

14 days, 14 Drawings.

DAY 1: June 26

All Aboard!



Sunday, June 27th:
Arrived in Roma and took the hotel shuttle straight to Hotel Julia.

I exit the hotel with no map, just kept running into magnificent ruins, piazzas, buildings and parks. Unbelievable.


Fontana di Trevi



Il Vittoriano


Largo di Torre Argentina



Piazza Navona



Ville Borghese
