This summer my friends of the italian association of urban sketchers “Matite in viaggio” invited me to pass a weekend with them drawing at Falzarego-pass in the Dolomites in the italian alps. On my way there I visited San Candido / Innichen, a place I wanted to see for years because of it’s famous romanesque church. Now I could visit and even draw it.
On my way back home I took a route via Italy, my first stop was Pieve di Cadore, the birthplace of the venetian renaissance painter Titian / Tiziano Vecellio. He was born there between 1476 and 1490, presumably in the house that is now called Titian’s House / Casa natale del Tiziano right in the centre of the village of Pieve di Cadore. It is a beautiful old building that can be visited and contains a small museum in the ground floor.
My next drawing shows the Lake of Pieve di Cadore in the evening.
I also visited the beautiful town of Treviso near Venice. There I met with a friend at Café Soffioni that is situated under the vaults of the town hall. Waiting for my friend I had some time to sketch the place.
The drawings that I drew at Falzarego-pass will follow soon.
