Plein Air Sketching

Apart from Plein Air painting, sketching around Florence is a very good way to see and get to know the city.

Today was a drawing day with a group of artists in the Fondazione Romano which is located in the Piazza Santo Spirito in Florence. Here we studied the architecture and artifacts which were donated by the son of a sea captain, Salvatore Romano. Inside are statues, paintings and access to the cloisters of the church of Santo Spirito.

The group consists mostly of young artists some of whom are students in the local Art Academies.
After drawing we escaped the March winds with a coffee in the 'Volume Cafe' in Santo Spirito where we compared notes and tips on art and painting.
