Our grandson William, who will be 11 in a few weeks, was here for a visit last week. Since he likes to draw I thought I thought it would be fun if we worked together on a large drawing. Looking at pics from our trip to Italy a few years ago, we selected as our subject a view from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

I started us off with a pencil drawing of the scene, and William divided the composition into the individual buildings. From there we each began working on our side of the drawing, then later switched sides so our individual contributions would be more fully integrated.

From the Bridge...pencil and markers...18x24
