I’d like to share some of the sketches that I’ve done during the first semester of my fourth year of undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo, which took place in Rome, Italy. Below is one of the sketches that I did during that time.
In Rome, we were encouraged by our professors to sketch and draw what we saw when we visited important architectural sites. Although these sketches were completed as part of an elective course in Rome, they were critical in helping me understand Italian architecture and the organization of Italy’s historic cities.
