daily drawing

I did several drawings today, indoors and out. This set was done at the Ca d'Oro. I hadn't been there in years and decided that it was time to go back. I don't recall ever seeing the ceramics collection before. You have to go up to the second floor, out on the loggia, up some stairs and into the ceramics galleries. There are some really delightful fragments and entire pieces from early Renaissance Venice. One surprise was tiles (photographs, really, because the originals are in restauro) from the Capella Lando, San Sebastiano. One is decorated with eyeglasses and a book. I made a little sketch for Owlfish.
