First up, Canio (I don't actually know his name, but he is Italian and makes a living as a clown and thus the reference to the opera Pagliaccia).
I was bombarded while traveling through Italy and so used my sketchbook in a very "sketchy" (pun) way to suck it all in.
Here is the sketchbook drawing of Canio
I drew him later after the whole train experience. Today, I roughed out another little watercolor of him.
I like the sketchbook drawing better. It has a certain looseness that I feel was lost in this more formal drawing. I'll revisit it. Practice will help me to distill the whole Canio-ness and allow a looseness to energize my drawings.
You can read the story of Canio and my experience on the train from Roma to Fabriano here on my blog. It was magical.
