ATTENTION: brand new crawl for next SketckCrawl Cascine Park ( Florence)

ciao!
Visto il monumento dell'Indiano è nel punto più lontano delle cascine e non facilmente raggiungibile, per facilitare l'accesso a chi non ha i mezzi tipo bicicletta abbiamo modificato la partenza:
ore 10:00 - Grotta del Frate ( appena restaurata-accanto alla fermata Tramvia CASCINE- punta A della mappa) per poi proseguire alla statua dei vittorio emanuele a cavallo o andare alla Piramide ( punto B della mappa sottostante)

Great sketches, wonderful artwork.

Killmax... thanks for the google map .. beautiful sketches. I like the fine linework and the subtle use of colour.
Roberto... Great park introduction by your blue bear LOL .. Fantastic sketchwork. What sketchbook paper are you using? I like the subtle ribbed tooth to the paper. Also what paint or ink are you using? The colours are very vibrant on your bear stuff, and appropriately matched to your more serious sketches.

Looks like you had a great day with good weather.

Cheers
CyberDave

Just super artwork from you two.....
Roberto, your crazy, cute cartoon of the squirrels nearly brought me to tears with laughter. Of course, the bear is adorable, too. More than I could expect from my own imagination. I have always said that I would like to be reincarnated as a squirrel. I envy you living in Firenze. I was there for only a few hours a few years ago. Need to see the place for a couple of days and more of Tuscany in general. Absolutely love it!

Max, love your style. Something else for me to aspire to. Your photos have a curious saturated look to them which does adds some magic to them.

My avitar, by the way, came from a photo I took of my shadow on a wall in the Vatican last August.

Ciao

One of my favourite sketchcrawl results to see is Firenze, I always look forward to this = ) Killmax those are excellent, some tremendous craft shown there particularly the B&W tree and statue studies. Roberto, your cartoons crack me up every time!! Awesome stuff, thank you Firenze.
