vicolo di Roma

Rome street

God, I LOVE the way she reaches her hand so emotionally - "Devo prendere questa direzione a sinistra??" and his slightly flirty "Beh nooo, deve andare lìii".




Uuuffa, I tried --- but eventually failed to depict their movements.
I'm going to dedicate a hundred of pages to catch these poses, these moves, this sense, this Rome street.



In the meanwhile -- just 10 minutes sketch (sebbene senza 'sta finezza...)

  10. I think you did great. Do you think she's a dancer with those calves? So that pose could be ballet related too perhaps? did she arrabasque down the street? (forgive spelling)

      She looks rather flexible indeed
