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