I love drawing images of Mediterranean villages. Their complexity of geometric shapes fascinates me, as it does with most architecturally minded artists. I have a carefully selected library of photos of these places, and once or twice in my life I have actually visited them. This drawing was done from a photo, and I can't remember what village it was, probably Italian. I'd love to go back, even if I had to climb stairs to get anywhere in the town. I wouldn't be the only person sketching there, either. Artists tend to "colonize" picturesque places.
