Riomaggiore is one of the five “fishing villages” that comprise the Cinque Terre on Italy’s western coast, on the Ligurian Sea. This village captivated me with its cliffs and sea, stacked architecture, glorious colors and textures, the colorful boats tethered and floating in gently lapping waves. Cinque Terre was a midpoint in our trip where we found a bot of respite, cooking in our own (temporary) kitchen with fresh handmade pasta, pesto, tomatoes and bread from the shop around the corner.

I made the ink drawings while traveling with my brother over holiday break in 2007; the travel was a generous gift from the architect I worked for in Savannah, Georgia. Combining the separate places highlights their formal similarities in this composition. I used watercolor to interpret and enliven and re-interpret the drawings here, in December 2022.

Welcome to my Travel Sketches II Collection: lines drawn on site now illuminated by waterCOLOR, a little more wild and free than the first collection of May 2020. Together, the Sketches reveal my personal evolution in architectural travel sketching and offer a piece of travel art that can remind you of your own memories in place.
