2587 / Favourite house at Vathi beach / Sifnos

Maybe my favourite spot to sketch at Vathi Beach: lovely buildings, nice shadow, sea breeze and benches to sit in, what more can we ask ?
I’ve done several sketches here, what’s your favorite? Slide to check the others.

2582 / Sail and sketch / Valencia

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.

2580 / Plaza del Tossal / Valencia

Sketch done at one of the touristy squares at El Carmen armen, V alencia. Started with #lamysafari, then #uniball and #pigmamicron and #pentelbrushpen for the dark values. #strathmore paper. (22,9×30,5 cm)

Swipe to see the process and the square picture. Isn’t that car grafitti great?

This sketch is slightly smaller than the ones I usually do,  although it took me 2 hours! I thought “smaller” would mean “faster” , but it is not always like that, is it?

2578 / Mercedes 123 wagon / Espinho // Portugal

Always wanted to sketch one of these Mercedes 123!  Swipe to the process pic.


What do you like prefer, the final sketch with the grey washes or the other?

2577 / Ponte D.Luis / Dom Luis Bridge / Porto // Portugal

Always wanted to sketch this amazing  view from old town Porto roofs. Love this triangular shape of the houses set!  Now, the usual dilemma: shall I go back there and paint it?

Finally with this #galaxynote10plus wide angle, I can fit all the landscape in one picture!

2576 / Monastiraki / Athens // Greece

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.

2575 / Ferry Athens / Sifnos // Greece

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?
