Overlook - Spoleto - Lesson Aerial Perspective

Spoleto Italy
Plein Air
Travel Journal

Throughout the two weeks I spent in Italy, I used my travel journal to try to capture in words, images and momentos aspects of this incredible trip.

This sketch was done sitting outside a gelato shop overlooking the valley from Spoleto, Italy. We were trying to capture aerial perspective, and I had a most challenging time simplifying the amount of woodland and greens.

Still, the mountains, valley, churches, forests, and fields all made this site a culmination of the 'nature' that I love about Italy.

  1. This is gorgeous Lin. I'm glad you had a good time in Italy. I was there about 10 years ago and I've always wanted to go back.

  2. Beautiful! I'm so pleased that you had a wonderful trip!

  3. Charming. Puts me right there with you, well, in a virtual way :)

  4. Very picturesque. You did a grand job in simplifying and the mountains behind look all distant and hazy.
