New house project on the way! The best way to understand the site and the “genius locci” of it is sending smoe hours sketching it, don’t you think?

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 ?

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!

What a treat! @gvamubav (National Fine Arts Museum in Valencia) invited me again to illustrate its amazing building and teach a workshop to celebrate  #museumday!

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.

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?
