Volterra leporello (2)

Here is the second set of drawings, these were made in Monteriggione.
The students had to do work there too, while we were sitting on a nice terrace in the town square.
It was a bit chilly, but a good espresso made up for that.
The top is the little medieval church, the second the bar and terrace next to the one we were sitting on.
And the bottom one the heavily guarded main entrance of the enclosed city.

Good series of sketches in Monteriggioni. I visited there and had a wine tasting with a very good sommelier. I recall the well in the centre of the town square and thought to myself that it would make a good subject for a sketch. But a thunderstorm was just beginning so we ran to our bus in the parking lot outside the town walls. It's nice to see your rendition of the town square.

Thanks Michael, I think I know that wine tasting shop. It was next to the terrace where I sat to make these drawings. Check this link of last year, the shop had some bottles at display + a helmet of the medieval exhibition on the first floor. (nov 8, 2014)
