The second day, June 6, of the III. Naples Urban sketchers Workshop 2014 wasn’t finished yet. In the evening we left the crowded Naples streets and entered the quite and dark courtyards of the old houses only to climb narrow stairs to reach a secret garden, where Riot Studio opened up its doors. The tree actors of Teatri 35 gave us most powerful performance; live sketches – tableaux vivants- of the famous artists’ paintings of the past, from Caravaggio’s Crocifissione di Sant Andrea to Reni’s Morte di Cleopatra. Mesmerising! Caroline Peyron and Simonetta Capecchi drew in indian ink beautiful black and red figures of the poses, which were then projected on the screen behind the group. And I hardly managed to gesture draw most of the poses, which lasted but a few seconds each. tanja simonic korosak_napoli 2014 riot studio
