34 books on Venice and 10 (so far) on BCN/Spain. I am not going to Venice but my friend that is wanted to borrow ‘a book’.
To explain, before I started sketching I read a LOT – I spent 3 months of solid reading before I went to Venice the first time and was a walking encyclopedia of architectural history (very very rusty now) I do need a cleanout and sort of my extensive library so thought it would be fun to collect them all. I have a ‘few’ on Gaudi- but there are a number of other architects that I own 5 or more books of. One of my Gaudi books is very special… but I will leave that for another time.
BTW, this sketch was done in a Stillman & Birn Epsilon sketchbook (for pen & ink line drawings)…but hey, let’s splash some watercolour on and see what happens….
