Sailing and sketching morning ⛵.

My friend has a ship’s logbook where he describes every every detail of each sailing day; today he asked me to illustrate it, that’s why sketched in this notebook.

#bicpen on #moleskine sketchbook

Last sketch in Athens, at Monastiraki. I would love to have more time to draw this city: a paradise  to sketch!

I started this sketh before going to Sifnos and finihed it after returning from the island.

Somewhere on Aegean sea.

Ferry from Sifnos to Athens. I was really tired but I wanted to captured this moment. I almost left the drawing unfinished because of the really stong wind and also I was continuously missing the colors! But an “urban sketch” should be truthful to the circumstances, no?

#lamysafari and @rk.spain on Hahnemühle sketch book

Summer sketch at Athens. The impressive Temple of  Olympian Zeus and the Acropolis on the background.  It was so hot, I think my watercolors never got dry so fast! It was hard to work “wet on wet” in these conditions…

Third session on this rather noisy corner (slide for the videos and process pics) ! Also, it was so windy, that was hard to keep the paper standing properly on my knees! Sometimes it is hard to be an urbansketcher! Anyway, love this corner and I wanted to sketch it for a long time!
