He does it with utmost care, and combines the photo in Photoshop.
Pietro asks beginners to have patience, practice a lot, and to spend time in improving their art. It helps in creating something new. He says he looks at his old photos that he had taken during travels and tries to find some new inspiration from it. When he is not able to come with ideas, he takes a walk or travels taking new photos by editing his drawings. Pietro tries to finding in everything some inspiration. He loves listening to music, reading a book, watching or traveling a film.

Pietro is modest and says he is not an expert as he did not study drawing, art, or such disciplines relating to art. He says it is his practice, his wish to work on new techniques, use drawing tools, and to experiment new things that has bought results. Pietro says his success is because of his love for drawing landscape and buildings with pens and pencils.
He creates with body using a pencil representing geometric simple shapes. From, there he begins to include other simple lines and gives more details using pen. He does not miss even the smallest. Finally he adds shades using either, pens or pencil. He says his art reflects his personality as he draws only that he likes.
