Cargo ship in Genova Harbor.


Genova Harbor has historically been one of the most important ports on the Mediterranean and it is the busiest in Italy, maybe in the Mediterranean Sea too.
Anyway it’s a very beautiful place to watercolorists.
when I boarding up I like painting and waiting that ship departs.
This is a tipical scene of portual hard work and you can see the dock by towers crane in backlight and the old harbor on the background too.

Watercolor Painting Workshops and Holidays

Laboratori e vacanze con lezioni  di disegno e acquarello dal vero


Students in Milan, Italy.


A parking is the better school to draw human figures.
For these girls I used a pencil, two  watercolor godets and a mop brush.
A few minutes of study and can be obtained a natural result about positions and outlines.

A sketch with ink.


Just a little drawing from my sketchbook, a figures study made with black ink and smooth paper 220g. When there is little time and little space for the equipment, the sketchbook it is perfect to record the details and to take notes.
For this reason the urban sketchers are inseparable from their sketchbook.
It’s a very useful technique also for the watercolor beginners, in my opinion.
In this case, I’ve used it to draw a daily scene visible every morning in Piazza Erbe to Verona, with the urban officers that check the sellers of the stands of the street market.
