Buon Giorno Dready ...
i had a window on to the grand canal, at canal level, near san samuele as i drew this bit of dready art … life was literally passing me by … the boats, the gondalas, the taxis, the ferries …
but it was the taxis that thrilled me with their highly glazed wood, the drivers only half piloting the boats as they text and talk on their cell phones … even the gondolas didn't compare for me.
I been fascinated by 'slipper boats' and rivas and thames launches and t'ings like that for years; their styling the glazed mahogany, the classic lines … and these have that same panache.
… in spades.
