Google Map of Rome Update

Visualizza Sketches - Roma in una mappa di dimensioni maggiori
It's been a very busy summer here in Rome. I spent most of my scant free time reviewing proofs of my forthcoming book, "Sketching on Location," so I haven't had as much time as I'd like to actually get out and draw, let alone do any blog posts. And now the summer heat has arrived in full force, which makes outdoor sketching a challenge, to say the least. But I've managed to do some drawing, and I've just updated the Google Map that marks the 200+ sketches I've done over the past several summers here. As always, more to come ... and I'll be sure to post more information about the book when I have a release date!


  1. Matthew,
    Love the map, immediately wondered how may miles you walked to do that many sketches. I'm excited about the book and looking forward to getting it.

  2. Hi Frank! I can't even imagine the number of miles I've walked here in Rome, but every step is a discovery. I hope for many more miles here ... it's such an amazing city, on so many levels. Hope you enjoy the book!

  3. Maps like this can really help a tourist, specially if it's his first time in the said place. Thanks for sharing this.
