Spring Break 2015!

This is the time of the year where only 2 short weeks fall between 2 terms.  There is just enough time to breathe and recharge for the final trimester of the basic programme.  I'm packing in sleep, plein airs, urban sketching, museum visits in Rome, Sargent's exhibition in London, etc... basically stuff that I can't do while the term is in session. 

The first morning of Spring Break took me to Piazza Beccaria where the pretty Magnolia tree is in full bloom.  After parking my easel ned t to a mobile book vendor, it's sketch away!!! 

Quickly sketching in the scene
