I think I´ve never painted with such high humidity level. We can notice that on the watercolor stains. Although it is Summer, it was cold and windy, as (almost) always in Leça da Palmeira, at the end of the day.
I finished the watercolor when the brush felt , beneath me, into the (already closed) swimming pool area!
Acho que nunca tinha pintado com um nível tão alto de humidade. Pode-se vêr o efeito dessa humidade nalgumas manchas de aguarela. Apesar de ser Verão, este foi um fim de tarde frio e ventoso, como (quase) todos em Leça da Palmeira.
A aguarela terminou, quando deixei cair o pincel, no recinto da piscina, que já estava fechado.
How many times have I draw this Building? This time with pencil and watercolor.
Today’s sketch was done on my surf board! It is an extended version of my “a fresh drawing every day” vespa stamp.
Fuzelhas beach and bar at the foreground; Alvaro Siza’s Boa Nova Tea House at the background.
Sunset at Boa Nova tea house. I’ve drawn this masterpiece dozens of times, and I’ll keep on doing it: it is always a big pleasure!
I’ve been drawn this swimming pool for the las 20 years; but I could draw, Siza’s iconic building (is it a building, a void?) a thousand times! This time I used a 4b pencil
Sketching Siza’s swimming pool with this sunset fantastic light is a double pleasure!
It is always a pleasure to draw the iconic building of 1958 design by Alvaro Siza Vieira.
In fact, these are 2 sketches of the same building, the upper sketch is a “zoom” of the one at the bottom. Instead of “zooming” with camera I did it walking towards the building and redrawing.
De facto, são dois desenhos, o superior é um “zoom” do inferior (vista geral). Neste caso, em vez de fazer o “zoom” com uma máquina fotográfica, fi-lo caminhando em direcção ao edifício e desenhando-o outra vez.
