It's been one week since coming to Italy. First couple days were spent in Rome, and we are now settled into our apartment in Florence. Trying to do more painting, but I've got nothing to show for it yet. I'll keep working on it. In the mean time, here are some sketches from the past week:
A map of the city centre where we spend all our time. My apartment is right above Piazza del Duomo, on via Gino Capponi. Everything (in this square) is walking distance. Since we are doing so much walking, it means I can justify eating gelato every day. For every meal.
