On June 8, the last day of the  III. Naples Urban sketchers Workshop 2014 we met at the Toledo subway station, where I sketched the horseman sculpture. Then we continued toward the Quartieri spagnoli. Quarteri spagnoli is a part of Naples, where streets get really narrow, where loundry hangs from almost every balcony of the five story buildings and where you don’t meet many tourists. However it is bustling with neighbourhood life and the urban art project, which started somewhere in 2009 added a new layer to its life. So far, more than 200 wall art pieces have been painted, mostly on the doors but also elsewhere, all around the area. We chose one route and tried to capture some of the paintings in their urban context to develop own imaginary story. The instructors Simo, Caroline, Nina and Federico were sketching along.

I draw a small map on site to pin point the locations, where I sketched.
