Hallo everybody! let me shortly introduce myself...

I was born in the last century in the countryside near the Fuchecchio's wetland (when pterodactyles were flying over the marches:-) and for the first eleven years I lived on the small hill of Montevettolini, nearby...
I learn from my father the rudiments of drawing, just been there and watching its job, breathing oil and turpentine...then I leaved for a new area and new interests....
But Nature remains in my...soul, fixed for ever...and so I am here with my sketch and photos, paintings, birdwatching and bird ringing and interest in conservation...will that be too much for me?....
Sandro (Alessandro Sacchetti)

Sometimes I have not enough time to draw directly in nature and I take photographs and then I do it at home...
Thank you to accept me in this blog, sketch in nature will be my ambition for the future!

Here some cormorants at Orbetello lagoons, taken long time ago......and this is a cormorant released from the Lipu recovery center in Capraia Island..
