Milano, Italy [RESULTS]

Post by jiwaki » Sun Oct 16, 2011 4:15 pm

On a cold day five sketchers met yesterday in Milan. After lunch everybody quitted, so I continued alone.

Here my drawings:

Palazzo Berri Meregalli (on the right) is a wonderful Liberty building, full of nice details, but the cold forced me to go in "speed mode" with ink silhouettes.
One day I'll try to sketch it in a more detailed way.

Image


A quite ugly corner building (above) and the entrance of the beautiful Villa Necchi Campiglio (below), with Walter, a new sketcher!

Image


After lunch, as I wrote before, I continued alone.
I reached Piazza Cordusio, in which wherever you turn your eyes you most likely see a bank. I was lucky to find a duo of buskers playing very good music the whole time I was drawing. When I finished the singer came to see what I was drawing and we talked a bit about their band and the SketchCrawl. Their name is "The Caravan Project".
In the meanwhile the 15th October protest (as Occupy Wall Street in NY) marched through Piazza Cordusio.

Image


For the last stop of my crawl I reached the protest in Piazza Duomo, where it was quite odd to see something like 2000 people protest and everybody else (a lot more) shopping as nothing was happening in the world.

Jiwaki,

Cool sketches. My favorite are the musicians and the silhulettes ones. The first one of the silhulettes building is very intriguing. I hope to see more from the group.

Thank you eyes, Dario, Pascal and Enrique. I think nobody from the rest of the group has an account here in the forum. I told them to post, but maybe you will see something in the next days on the Urban Sketchers Italy page.

Enrique, the last one is the one I like the most from the day.
The protesters are the people in the distance (near the white tower which is just the king's statue under restoration), but I didn't sketched them in the short distance because it was too cold by then. What I found strange and tried to portray was that except a drum and a megaphone, it was a little more than a normal saturday afternoon crowd for Piazza Duomo.

I think the forums need a like button :P. Wonderful description of day, especially the protesters contrasted with the shoppers :).

The silhoute drawings are the best.
thank you for sharing

bellissimi gli skizzi di Gab, ma digli di metterli anche qui!
I really like the black silouette pictures, remind me of the italian comics :-)

Hi, I also like the black silhouette, an unusual yet expressive way to represent a street with its buildings! I love also the last one, with the crowd drawn in black and the dynamic lines of the people's shadows!
