• From January to June 2016, I lived and studied in Rome, taking trips to other cities and countries. I filled up seven sketchbooks with observations. Here are some excerpts, organized into four broad categories.
  • 1. form/space
    how can drawing create the illusion of three-dimensionality?
  • 2. material
    how does the history of use affect material properties?
  • 3. light
    how do light and color create a convincing mood?
  • 4. style
    how do systems of representation create images?
