A Roma

During my semester abroad in Rome, I began this series of watercolor silhouettes of iconic architectural landmarks. There were lots of watercolor supplies in our classroom because there was an art class offered the semester before, and I just started messing around with it in my spare time. The Flavian Amphitheater, or the Colosseum, and the Pantheon, which I saw when I visited Greece over Spring Break, were ideal because they had recognizable but relatively simple silhouettes, and they had regular elements of negative space to balance the work. The other piece I ended up doing was the Cathedral of St. John Lateran, the official church of the Pope. Though the facade of this building is recognizable, I had to improvise with the negative space, and the face-on angle left the piece looking a lot more flat. (2019)
