Sunday lunch at Trevi

Great lunch . . I could have done the ‘taster’ lunch in the square… but I don’t like eating food off plastic plates and drinking wine out of plastic cups  . . . . all whilst standing up. This was much more civilised. The new oil, which is very early, was spectacular, and the salsiccia, and  . . . . .  everything was just right!!!

The Big Draw…il Grande Disegno

It started as part of the Campaign for Drawing in the UK,  but it is now a annual worldwide event. In Italy, it only happens at Trevi at the moment, and yesterday was the second year. I love the Quentin Blake illustration for the logo!

It seemed to involve mainly children, parents and grandparents . . . . and me. I drew some stuff, like these ‘balloons and tap’, and had a laugh with some of the kids.  I just wish there had been this sense of freedom to experiment for us 50 years ago. . . . .

PS these are tiny versions in my Moleskine: the originals were a lot larger!!
