daily drawing - Siracusa duomo facade

Although the cathedral of Siracusa incorporates a Greek temple within it, the facade of this most amazing building is Baroque. I drew this in about a half hour yesterday, Palm Sunday afternoon, standing a bit to the side of the front, in the midst of a piazza crowded with families, balloon sellers, braided palm sellers, and several open air cafes. I thought I was out of the way, but a waiter wanted to park his motorcycle right where I was drawing. We worked it out. After I finished the drawing, I bought three braided palm leaves.
