Stephanie lived in Rome for a while, so she knows the city pretty well. She took us to the Pantheon, telling us that it has a nice cupola to sketch.
I thought she meant there was a small cupola in the middle of the building, but in fact the whole place is a huge cupola. Talk about a challenging subject!
I tried to apply what I learned in Civita, and it helped a little, but working with curved lines everywhere really is something else. This is the best I could manage.

After this, we more than deserved a bit of rest at a nice terrace on Piazza Navona. I know, not the smartest choice. Could there be a more expensive place in Rome? But the place is so beautiful that, really, why not indulge in a piece of pizza there?
Time also for a very simple and minimalistic sketch. A real walk in the park after the Pantheon.
|I loved the signs here|
I was surprised at how easy it felt compared to what it would have been just a week before.
|Tourists and traffic everywhere|
|This one was a beautiful bright yellow colour|
|Just need to learn how to combine this with colour now|
I didn't muster the courage to sketch the place, though, but I quickly managed to capture one of the angel statues inside ; my last sketch in Rome for this time.
