Florence Sketches

Some sketches of Florence. The hills with the church, and the hills with the clouds were sketched from our hotel pool. Nice view, eh? The simple outlined hill with clouds is the biggest hill around Florence. It has a distinctive shape and is usually a flat dark color as it is far away. If cezzane were a florentine, he would have picked this mountain to paint. The branch of leaves is from an oak tree. On our last day there was a huge rain, complete with crazy winds and even hail. On the walk back to our hotel there were branches and leaves strewn all over the road. I like the shape of the oak leaf, especially how each leaf is different yet still the same.
