Slide to the details

After suffering so much painting beaches and landscapes, finally something easy to draw: a good and messy rooftop 🙂 Yahoo!!!
Ok, not suffering at all on Greek beaches, apart when painting them 🙂
What do you find easier to sketch: beaches or cities?

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.

At the breathtaking Temple of Poseidon. Amazing light, unfortunately not for the best reasons,  Greece was on fire 😦 . Tried to sketch it with 8b pencil (pic2) and pentel brushpen. What’s your favorite?

What a treat! Sketching the amazing altarpieces room of @gvamubav! (National Fine Arts Museum in Valencia) . Have you been there? Have you ever drawn a altarpiece? I found it really hard!

#sailandsketch at the end of the day, between Jávea and Dénia.

Not easy to sketch at the boat. Even harder to paint… and we need to be very  careful to avoid the sketching gear to fall into the sea! Have you ever tried?

#pigmamicron 0.2 and #uniballeye micro on #hahnemühle sketchbook

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

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?
