Every July, Fred Lynch travels to the central Italian City of Viterbo and spends hours sitting in the shade, drawing from observation. Hunched over his sketchbook, he faces his favorite subjects: sun-splashed piazzas, odd ancient houses and quiet cobblestone alleys, most of which he finds within the walls of this small medieval city.
Being an on-site artist makes Fred both the observer and the observed. In this book, he shares his drawings and some of the many amusing stories of their of their making.
This is a new expanded edition.
