Siesta Sketches: Drawing From Central Italy
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. When he's not drawing, Fred's teaching journalistic drawing to college students as part of a summer studies program. He and his students are part of a long history of traveling artists who aim to capture, record and share the character, history and beauty of their foreign destination.
    "Drawing on site is an experience as well as an art. It's extra-sensory. As I sit and draw for hours on the streets of Italy, I absorb far
    more than the passing tourist might. I soak up every inch of the scene, along with its sounds, smells and local characters. Translating
    that rich experience through my drawings is my goal. I hope to share impressions as well as appearances."
