Pompei

MS.Pompeiiauto.ADJ.size.jpg

I loved Pompei!  We had an excellent guide and I was able to stop for really fast sketches while he was talking.  This is one sketchbook page showed my favorite view of the end of the forum with Mount Vesuvius towering in the background.  I was constantly amazed at the sophistication of this civilization that was buried in 79 AD - especially seeing the wonderful mosaics and almost contemorary silver designs from Pompei which are on view at the Archeology Museum in Naples.

How fortunate you are to visit Pompeii. Your sketches although simple are lovely and wonderfully descriptive of what you saw. I too would love to sit and sketch the sights there and perhaps one day I may do so. Please add more sketches of your visit there if you have them. They are very pleasant to view...
