Big Trip 2010: Borromini's Friends - Part 1

October 14, 2010 | 1 Comment

Borromini collects wee friends when he travels around the world (big adult friends as well as you will see via the photos that I hope to start uploading soon) Here is the first half of the collection from this trip.

I don’t often draw my little travelling companion as I am too worried about getting his proportions exact… but there has been quite a few other portraits of him done during the big adventure. I know where most of them are… but if you did meet him and sketch him it would be greatly appreciated if you could post a link to your sketch!
This is the first opportunity I have had to use the Maimeri paint set that I bought in Venice – I didn’t really need a new paint set but somehow I have this terrible habit of tracking down an art store in every location and even worse habit of buying something in every art store that I enter!

Stay tuned for Borro’s 4 remaining friends.

    Liz–glad you're home safe after your amazing trip. I've been following you around and totally enjoying myself vicariously. It was fun visiting "old friends" through your sketches. I'm inspired by your work to spend tomorrow at our local SketchCrawl so thanks!
