Sansepolcro, Tuscany, Italy
I go to Sansepolcro alot and this is the 9th time or so this year. I never really get tired of the place, it is small and not many tourists, you really get a sense of the place walking around. The people are very proud of their heritage and still compete in yearly cross bow competitions and like to dress up in medieval clothes. I sat in the window sill of a bank which was closed to make this watercolor sketch on 8x10 Fabriano cold pressed block.
The rough below is about 2 inches tall and was of another street scene I didn't have time to paint. Trying to get looser and let the paper do more.
