Sketches from Italy: Rome, Ischia and Frascati

Just got back from a 12 day trip in Italy where I spent the first 4 nights in Rome, 3 nights in Ischia, and a day trip to Frascati. Here are some sketches from this trip:

This was a real surprise! In the years I have been on this forum I have enjoyed a variety of photos posted by travellers. But I have never seen posts of anyone sketching their travel experiences. Thanks Dan, your sketches are amazing and highly entertaining.

Delightful. I especially appreciate your color sense. Very hard to project the feel of the nighttime glow of the Colosseo and the daytime bright blue of the sea at Ischia, and you got both. They look great on the web too.
