The Sistine Chapel, Rome

Originally uploaded by Anita Davies

I've been dreaming of seeing the Sistine Chapel for many years. I have photos of it, books with it in and a film on DVD showing how it was created...In just 218 days I will see it with my own eyes, living the dream...relishing in the moment.

Wonderful as ever. I'm telling all myt art pals how much I need to practice buildings and figures to get anywhere near your technique/quality. Then I showed them your blog and there were gasps of delight and surprise all round. Glad you found a reference for the Sistene Chapel. I have a wonderful book with numerous plates, including a pull out concentina of the whole ceiling. Will try to capture portions of the figures in my Italian practice sketchbook.
Are you coming up next weekend??

Oh bless you Joannie, glad they enjoyed my blog. I got the booking form the other day...Woooohoooo! Will bring it with me.
I am out of practice with people too and statues will be something we bump into quite often me thinks!
It's sketchcrawl on Saturday, so think of somewhere we can go sketch. Will call you in the week my friend...x
