Today we are in Naples, Italy and it is beautifully rough around the edges. It is a gritty but very vibrant city with incredible buildings, piazzas, and friendly people. I don’t think that I’ve ever been in a busier city. There are cars, scooters, and people moving around constantly. It’s quite an experience just to sit and take it all in. And, of course, we’ve had a chance to enjoy some pizza from the city that invented it.
I’ve also made time to do some sketches of the city. Since arriving at our first port in Barcelona, my primary means of making art has been drawing and it feels very good. Drawing has always been very calming and a great way to look closely at my surroundings. I’m sure there are more paintings on the horizon but here are a couple of drawings from Naples.
