The next stop during my summer trip to Italy was in Siena. Personally, I wasn’t very impressed with the place, as for me it was too… monochromatic. Everything was too red for me. But there was one building that really stood out – the Cathedral. It was amazing and the impression was even greater since at the moment I was entering the square, where the Cathedral was located, there was a big stage built close to it with some kind of an ongoing rehearsal … and there was incredibly loud music, which reminded me a bit of the OST from “The Gladiator” and really suited the look and feel of the whole place. So much that it gave me goose bumps 🙂
As to my todays post, which was supposed to be here a couple of days ago, what a coincidence – Tommy Kane, who I am a big fan of, posted on his blog a drawing from the same city 2 days ago. You can check it out here. He presented a different building, but I guess that’s good – you can’t compare our work directly 😉 Additionally, I learned two things there:
- What is the reason for all the building being the same colour and that I’m not the only one who feels strange there because of that.
- What is the etymology of the Burnt Siena colour name.
Enjoy the drawings and the read.
