Holiday Sketches Series 2a: Tivoli in pencil

The view from our accommodation in Tivoli was sublime. Hills, waterfalls, rocks with caves, a zig zag path into a gorge, a city on a precipice, a misty view out onto the plain and a terraced hillside full of different trees. Enough to draw again and again. After a while, the view started to have certain features that became like parts of a body.

Here’s some details, showing the different marks used to denote different textures and structures.

The first sketch. Using different shapes for different objects.

From a different viewpoint. With ancient wall.

An angular drawing, made with early David Bomberg in my head.

A pensive view. Trees, rocks and falling water, described on a flat plane with just a pencil.

More vigour, with some yellow highlights.

From the bottom of the gorge, looking up to Tivoli with a lizard posing in the foreground.

The dining room. I decided to leave the people out.

A bedroom.
