A COUPLE

Luigi, skipper, artist, born in Arezzo, Kate, archaeologist, born in England…met by chance at his exhibition, he taught her to draw, now they draw together, two hands, two minds, two souls, united on one piece of paper….

ABOUT 50 PENS PER DRAWINGS

That’s what it takes to fill a piece of paper 100x70cm! Using all types of black ink pens…Pilot, Staedtler and others…from very fine  pencil-like 0.05, to intense black 0.5… different techniques used to create light and shadow and perspective…often with a dash of colour, silver or gold, to draw in the eye.

ABOUT 300 HOURS OF WORK

That’s what it takes on average to complete a drawing…no pencil draft, but straight in with the pen… the ideas coming  from two minds, drawing on an font of experiences and dreams which never end and continue to grow day by day.

A LIFE OF TRAVELS

From Europe to Asia and Australasia, travel is an essential part of Luigi and Kate’s life….drawings of sea and boats reflect Luigi’s many years as skipper throughout the Mediterranean…then there are the  many cities they have visited whether real or in their dreams, ancient or modern…drawings almost always  touched by nature…animals, trees and flowers, giving  life to the page…
