EDM #43 Ceramics (Ceramiche)

We bought this ceramic (ceramiche) vase while in Caltagirone, Sicily, Italy this May. We fell in love with the country, the people, the food, the ceramics, the artist, everything Sicilian! While at her shop, the artist gave us a ceramic making demonstration and her husband and apprentice demonstrated Sicilian folk music—glorious! I want to add a bit of watercolor to this pencil and ink sketch, even though the paper is text weight and my watercolor skill is nominal. So I thought I’d scan the vase prior to this attempt just in case the watercolor doesn’t quite work!

Very nice, Lin. I think it will make a wonderful watercolor too. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with it!
