George’s Postcard Note: Sitting on the wall of the second floor entry loggia gave me a perspective of the Pazzi Chapel I had never found before in other visits. Fun to find a balustrade to sit on. Other visitors seemed fascinated as I sat there drawing away. The light of the late afternoon changed as shadows fell at a low angle across the chapel and its manicured lawn in front. The challenge for the artist is to capture the true essence of its renaissance proportions – in this case the series of arches held up by thin columns supporting the loggia, and culminating in the small elegant dome and its cupola.
