It is not the first time I sketch this view and I won’t be the last, for sure! Isn’t this view amazing?

Would you leave the drawing “clean” like this or would you paint it?

Comission sketch for the Museo bellas Artes de Valencia , one of my favourite buildings to visit in Valencia. I love the light at the main facade at the end of the day. This light doesn’t last too much time, so I had to do it in two different days.
I wanted to sketch this view for a long time. It is done from the former river that now is a beautiful garden  where I usually jog and ride my bycicle.
Swipe to check the process (and the humidity – can you see it on the paper?!)

rodrigo botet 7-7-14001_rps During this last, more relaxing week, without posting any drawing, I was able to finish some important pending matters. Anyway, after the break, I am back with the same subject of the last post ( ), though this time using a 4b pencil, instead of a roller-ball, as the base of the drawing. which do you prefer?

Durante esta última semana, más relaxada, sin publicar cualquier dibujo, he sidocapaz de terminar algunos importantes asuntos pendientes. En fin, después del descanso, estoy de vuelta con el mismo tema del último post (, aunque esta vez con un lápiz 4b, en lugar del roller-ball, como base del dibujo. ¿cuál te gusta más?

astoria -7-14 001_rps astoria -7-14 001_d1rps astoria -7-14 001_drpsThis is my post number 1000!!

That means I´ve been uploading these last years more than 1000 drawings, since several posts feature more than one sketch!

I never thought I would reach this number when I started this adventure!

Right now, I am a bit shocked (that is why I took a couple of day to upload this post number 1000, postponing it), asking myself what to do with this blog: to stop, to change the concept of it…

I will do a short break for sure!

while I ponder on this, I would like to thank all the followers that have supported and endured me.


Este es mi post número 1000!!

Eso significa que he estado subiendo estos últimos años más de 1.000 dibujos, ya que varios posts cuentan con más de un dibujo!

Nunca pensé llegar a este número cuando empecé esta aventura!

Ahora mismo, estoy un poco en shock (por eso tardé un par de días para subir este post número 1000), preguntándome qué hacer con este blog: si parar, cambiar el concepto de la misma …

Voy a hacer un breve descanso, seguro!

Mientras reflexiono sobre esto, me gustaría dar las gracias a todos los seguidores que me han apoyado y soportado.

This Church (Iglesia del Patriarca) features my favorite frescos in Valencia. they were painted by the genovesi Bartolomeo Maturana (1573 – 1605).
As most of the times my preferred part of the drawing is the one that isn’t painted (the white poster).

This afternoon while all the spaniards were sleeping the siesta, I went to the garage to draw the ’62 Bultaco I use to ride in the classic motorbike meetings, here in Valencia. I’ve uploaded part of the process (48 minutes). I apologize for the quality of the pics, but the light was awful…
