2613 / Benimamet / Valencia // Spain

Sketching inside the car this morning.  Itsnthe 12th consecutive rainy day in Valencia! Something that didn’t happen for almost 150 years!! I was so looking forward to sketch out,  the car was my only chance. S
BTW, I started this sketch in a sunny day using direct watercolor,  today I inked with with a #lamysafary F.

2610 / Renault 5 Turbo 2 / Circuito Ricardo Tormo

Yesterday at Racing Legends @circuitvalencia , sketching this amazing #renault5turbo2 . My father had several R5, so I have a special felling by this car.

Slide for the process pics and video where you can hear the beautiful noise of the 1984 130hp turbo rear engine. Isn’t it great?

Painting sessions take place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and beautiful outdoor locations around the island. This workshop in Kea is designed to give you confidence and enjoy sketching and painting wherever you are, gazing at white Greek village, natural landscapes or the way light is casted in an ancient ruin. Throughout the course we’ll work spontaneously in a variety of themes, where I’ll show you to learn to see the world by drawing, how to compose and structure your drawings and to keep your watercolors fresh and alive.

Each day will start with a short demo and end with a critique, while sitting in a beautiful location, as an ancient theatre or a Mediterranean beach. We will work progressively, from simple to complex scenes, from line to values, from one color to richer color schemes. As part of a small group, you’ll have plenty of individual attention as we work, allowing you to develop at your own pace concepts as composition, perspective, simplifying a scene or capturing the essence of a place. There will be different approaches in each location adapted for beginners or advanced sketchers. We’ll focus on having fun while we sketch, recording as much as we can as we move around town.

 

The aim is to have you return home with great memories on fat book filled with personal sketches. After this workshop, as you will learn to see Kea through your drawings, I am sure this island will become even more beautiful. 

2605 / Fine Arts School / UPV Valencia

sketching with my @etsaupv (architecture) students at their exam. What is the best way to enjoy your time while your students are sketching? Sketching with them it’s a good solution, don’t you think?
