2244 / Rooftop sketch / Valencia

Rooftop sketch at my #uskathome. No so bad to sketch at home when we have a rooftop and good weather. It was a shame that the blue sky got sudenly so cloudy! I hope I can draw more of these on next days. #uniball and #pigmamicron on #hahnemühle #sketchbook. Pic Fuji X30

2235 / Rooftop sketch / Valencia

hugo _ vlc rooftop_9-19 jpg.jpgHow a fast wash can change a drawing? Check out the first sketch and tell me what do you prefer, or what do you thinking about the wash effect?

929 / zooming to Boa Nova tea house / Leça da Palmeira // Porto

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.


899 / Chiesa di San Miniato al Monti / Firenze

firenze 13001_s miniato_r_p_n_r

Bishop Hildebrand had the present Basilica built in 1018 on the site of a 4th century chapel. The lower part of the facade is decorated by fine arcading; the upper part is simpler and has a fine 12th-century mosaic of Christ between the Madonna and St. Miniato. The Basilica has an unfinished 15th century campanile that was damaged during the siege of Florence in 1530. The Bishop’s Palace, the fortifications, the monumental cemetery and the Basilica all stand at the top of a hill called Monte alle Croci, which overlooks Piazzale Michelangelo below and over the entire city of Florence. The interior of this magnificent example of Florentine Romanesque architecture (it originally belonged to the Benedictine monks and then passed to the Olivetan friars in 1373) is tripartite with a trussed timber roof.
