Watercolor journey with the course Roman Architecture by the Yale University

I continue the stay-at-home travel Art + Roman Architecture + the city of Rome with Yale’s course Roman Architecture https://www.coursera.org/learn/roman-architecture. Roman Architecture. Introduction The urban Grid and Public Architecture.1-2

Pantheon is one of the greatest masterpieces of Roman Architecture with a very innovative structure. The building represents the power and glory of Rome itself and the Roman Architecture for the world. This is the greatest building ever conceived by man, a genius of the human mind and ability.

My painting for this session is about the Pantheon, with its extraordinary interior space that is shaped by light. Apparently it was the revolutionary transformation of the use of Roman cement and stone. The Pantheon is representative of Rome as a whole in its grandeur, scale and elegance, would you agree? 

The eye of the Pantheon through the centuries has become a model for many buildingsAncient architects were pouring the roman cement into a wooden model. Essentially they broke the inflexibility of belief from the Greek and Etruscan architects that any architectural buildings should be only straightforward and rectilinear, including roofs

Art and Travel. Severian Wall

Roman Architecture

Watercolor journey with the course Roman Architecture by the Yale University

Let’s start my stay-in-home travel Art + Roman Architecture + the city of Rome with Yale’s course Roman Architecture https://www.coursera.org/learn/roman-architecture. Roman Architecture. Introduction. Roman Urbanism.1-1

The Servian Walls is ancient Roman defensive barrier built around the famous Seven Hills of the republican city after the Sack of Rome in 4century B.C. In the early period of Roman architecture, the stone blocks were just piled one on top of the other for the wall. We can still see the very wide section of the Servian Walls near Rome’s train station Stazione Termini station. The city grew over time and in the late third century AD (under the emperor Aurelian), the impressive and famous set of the Aurelian Walls was built. A new technology is concrete revolutionized Roman architecture and concrete faced with brick. We can still see some parts of the two ancient walls in Rome.

My first painting is about the Servian Wall, the first ancient Roman wall, recognizing this major monument of the ancient Roman architecture.

I must admit that several times I passed a part of the fortress wall near the station in Rome and the Esquiline Gate of the Servian Wall, and I did not recognize this significant part of Roman architecture in history and just admired the architectural monuments. On my next trip I will definitely return to the remains of the fortress wall and the gates of the Eternal City. “All roads lead to Rome” Alain de Lille

Art and Travel. Watercolor journey with the course Roman Architecture by the Yale University. Part 1.

Artist, Roman Architecture, Uncategorized, Urban sketching, Voyage

In my new journey watercolor stay-in-home travel with a new course Roman Architecture at online Open Yale course. There so many interesting facts I am learning from the Professor of History of Art and Classics Diana E.E. Kleiner Dunham. https://www.coursera.org/learn/roman-architecture

Painting journey of my 3 passions – Roman Architecture and Art with references and learning from Yale University Roman Architecture, Professor Kleiner about art, architecture

The course Roman Architecture is my favourite one because I love to travel and would like to discover the power of architecture to shape culture and society with my additional research from the lectures.  The nine- week course explores the great cities and their buildings, engineering marvels of Rome and its empire in their ancient and contemporary contexts. Rome, cities of Pompeii, Sicily, France, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia and the rest of Roman Empire. Experience the full brush of Rome’s beginning as an Iron Age village and how it became a world-class city and a gigantic empire surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.

The Romans had a vast impact on architecture worldwide. The Roman Architecture course will help me to design my own Roman City Art Project. I am going to learn some architecture skills and enhance my life.

Every temple has its story and legend, I love all lectures with interesting facts of the professor Diana E.E. Kleiner. One of the good things about learning is the professor’s enthusiasm and her own photos. In addition, I will use my husband’s photos and my own sketches from our vacation in Italy.

The course starts from 8 B.C. architecture and moves from one revolutionary experiment to the next one; and my paintings will follow the consecutive process of the development of Roman architecture that was born out of ancient Greek and Etruscan styles   I hope that soon I will travel to Rome with all my new knowledge from the Roman Architecture course 🙂

I will pick a photo reference from a lecture for each painting. I am going to share my quick comparison for four picks of art watercolor albums and paints.

  1. Acquarello watercolour album. Fabriano cold pressed
  2. Acquarello watercolour album. Fabriano, grana grossa rouch
  3. Fluid 100, cold press
  4. Van Gogh, National gallery

Watercolour paints:

  1. Van Gogh travel box
  2. Van Gogh tubes
  3. PWC
  4. Cotman
  5. Winsor Newton
  6. Charvin
  7. Box Munovo
  8. Gelly roll Sakura white pen
  9. Watercolour pencils Albert Durer
  10. Watercolour pencils Faber Castell Durer
  11. Watercolour pencils Derwent

Rome, Seven Hills. The Palatine Hill

ArtTravel, Roman Architecture

Stay home and Urban sketching. Travel and Art.

Like many of you, I am staying at home this year and trying to use this time to learn something new, I started 2 new courses through Coursera. Both are about Rome:) Roman Architecture by Yales university and the course Archaeology and History of the Palatine Hill provided by Roman university Sapienza. This is why even staying at home in Canada, all my paintings and drawings this winter are about Rome, the Eternal city.

The Palatine Hill, which is the central of the Seven Hills of Rome, is one of the most ancient parts of the city.

Cobblestone roads from the Roman Empire to the present day. An ancient legend about a diamond mountain, to the top of which a raven flies once in a thousand years to sharpen its beak, says that only a second of eternity will pass by the time it exudes the entire mountain.

Next to the Palantine Hill is the Colloseum, I painted it in ink, sepia and coloured Christmas ball with a Christmas tree branch.

Centuries have passed since the first cobblestone roads were built – a short time for eternity, but in comparison with human life, it is huge. What allowed the ancient roads, albeit not in their original form, to survive to this day? Magic:)

Bon voyage! Until the next travel:) Stay healthy.
