piazza della rotunda

Fabriano Artistico CP 300 gsm, 9" x 12". Daniel Smith PrimaTek paints.

this is the small square in front of the rotunda, an enormous dark shell built under the late emperors. the square itself is lined with cafes and contains a lovely small fountain.

we left the hotel before dawn, walked to the tiber, then back to the rotunda through the piazza navone. we had coffee in one of the cafes waiting for the sun to come up and the monument to open.

Bruce, this is beautiful!

Think I've seen this, if not in person than in photos or paintings. The papery, moulting exterior benefits from not having the All-In-One Alvaro treatment...wondering which of the primateks you used.
