The Barroc Door of the Cathedral and adjacent belfry tower, from Plaza de la Reina.
It is becoming an habit: to use the blue bic on Saturdays! Although I must admit that is tough to draw with this kind of pen.
When I was at the University, at Porto, every architecture student used a bic (Álvaro Siza’s influence), but a black one, off course. I saw this new blue and found it pretty cool!
This one is dedicated to Isa, she knows why…
Yesterday I drew the entrance facade, full of scars of the civil war, of the Church of Santa Catalina, a centric temple of Valencia, near the Cathedral.
BIC drawing, 30 minutes, under the shadow of a tree, trying to protect myself from the heat!
This afternoon, after many years, I got back to the old BIC, though this time with a new fancy color!
This afternoon at Plaza de la Virgen, looking at the gothic door of the Cathedral.
One more drawing of this square, done in 5 minutes with the pilot parallel pen.
Quick “Old sketch” from 2013, at one of my favorite squares!
Drawing negative space (the form of the sky that buildings outline leave). A different way to look at urban space, that I learned from my friend Rui Cunha.
We were following the populous Easter procession at the former fisherman neighborhood of Cabanyal. There were a lot of disguised groups walking slowly , each one with their one music band at the back. Valencia is famous by their bands from all the villages that surround the main city .
