Today's facilitators were Liz and Adam. The workshop was held in a gallery housing the works of Canaletto and Panini, but works of Canaletto's nephew Bellotto. It was amazing how they were able to discuss the technique and incorporate the lives of these painters. Furthermore, they provided materials for drawing. Look at the pictures in this post to have a preview.
The line for the workshop. We were there way before the registration time started to make sure that we have a slot.

Canaletto's The Porta Portello, Padua
Using lines and perspective, I was able to come up with some semblance of an outline
Panini's Interior of St. Peter's Basilica
Drawing landscapes can be scientific after all, using lines and angles. It is definitely refreshing take an artistic away from my otherwise mathematically concentrated life.
