Sketching in Rome

 From our room with a view

Largo di Torre Argentina

We recently had the good fortune to spend three days in Rome staying in a delightful suite overlooking the ruins in Largo di Torre Argentina. 

How did I score three days in Rome?  Well, Italy happened to be playing Ireland at Rugby in the old Olympic Stadium.


I would probably have been bored to tears had Italy not won!


The highlight of the trip (for me) was discovering a wonderful little kosher restaurant in the old Ghetto where I finally saw how to prepare Carciofi alla Romana.  The fridge is now full of globe artichokes.

Carciofi...mmm.The monsoon proved too much for my poor plants. :-(
But a weekend in Rome? Lovely.
Nice lights on your trees, by the way.

Jealous, jealous and more jealous! I love Largo Argentina! My first time in Rome we stayed at the Hotel Tiziano, right around the corner from it. I love that neighborhood. And any kosher restaurant in the Ghetto...best carciofi hands down!

Lovely sketches of Rome. I particularly remember the view of the top one. Longing to go to Rome again.

Am not an expert, but I thought your sketches in Rome look lovely. They have a certain style I can’t quite describe… a focus perhaps on just the trees? Anyway I do think they’re good.
