Peschiera Borromeo, Italy [RESULTS]

A solo sketchcrawl and the first in my city, Peschiera Borromeo. It's also my first SC on bike.
I move by bike, thanks to the rare clear sky. After days and days of rain the green is so bright.
I draw the old village of Peschiera (which gives the name to the whole city), built around the castle of the counts Borromeo.


Image
In front of the castle, beyond the vaulted passage in the distance, a couple of spouses with friends and relatives: classic saturday scene.

The castle of Peschiera Borromeo.
The ducks stopped many times, looking at me and waiting. I should have taken some bread with me!


PS: I took the sketchcrawl as an opportunity to experiment a fast drawing approach I'm not used to. I tried pure watercolor, without ink or pencil lines. On the last sketchcrawls I used brush + ink bottle as fast technique, but in spring I wanted some color.

molto belle le pennellate senza matita, e l'atmosfera e' cosi' piacevole!
Ho fatto diversi sketchcrawl in solitaria e la cosa positiva e' poter gestire la giornata a piacere e andare dove ti pare.

Thank you for sharing your sketches. I especially liked the vivid colours. The one good thing about rain is that it does make the world more vibrant! An interesting idea to go by bike.
Like you I did a solo crawl as it was my first attempt, and there was very little chance for me to find fellow sketchers before the day. I hope next time to have some company as it is good to share ideas. Thank goodness we have this website so we can see others work!
Good luck with your sketching.
Miki
