"Day" by Michelangelo 
(Medici Tombs)

Done on location in the San Lorenzo Chapel, the Medici Tombs

Ballpoint pen on watercolor paper

Comments

The most memorable thing for me about this drawing was it was done in a gloriously cool place!  That day in Florence we were baking in the sun.  My friend Terry was more than willing to hang out with the tombs for awhile because it was about 20 degrees cooler than outside.  

I don't have any good photos to go with this one as it was very dark and they don't allow flash photography inside.
