-- San Francisco Focus, May 1995
San Francisco-based illustrator Marlene McLoughlin spent a year in Italy, painting scenes from Florence to Rome. Road to Rome, a collection of her watercolors, is a charming visual travel diary.
-- Communication Arts, July 1995
This lovely hardbound book is the perfect example of an illustrator's dream: to do a book on a subject you love and to have it published by someone other than yourself. Marlene McLoughlin is a San Francisco Bay Area illustrator, currently living in Rome. Her work has appeared in many books, but this is the first she has authored. Her evocative watercolor paintings and pen and ink drawings capture the romance and beauty of Italy. Ms. McLoughlin's illustations are accompanied by handwritten text, lyrically describing the colors and moods of her scenes. This well-designed book should get many an illustrator thinking.
-- Sun-Sentinel, June 1995
San Francisco Bay Area artist and illustrator Marlene McLoughlin takes us on a journey through Italy in watercolors. From Florence to Rome via the hill towns of Arezzo, Sienna, Montepulciano, Assisi, Todi and Cortona, the painter records in her illustrated journal such details as terra cotta buildings with doors of aquamarine; fields of mustard and stormy purple skies; pasta shop windows and street produce stands; yellow espresso cups, eccentric little chairs, tiles and decorative grillwork.
