1093 / The Mini on the wall*work in progress / Valencia // Spain

I´ve been drawing a car at a wall with Posca markers. This 1,4 m classic Cooper is being displayed at the bedroom of an (almost) 3 years old Mini fan. It is hard to sketch in a such a big scale! I hope to finish it soon…

Me escapé de la multitud que se pasea por de la calle principal de la ciudad vieja para hacer este boceto en una hora; justo antes de comer una fantástica pizza en una encantadora terraza y muy bien acompañado! ¿Qué más se puede pedir en un final de tarde de verano?

1005 / Pergola at Viveros / Valencia // Spain

This is not my favorite subject, by I stuck with friend who was drawing it,  so I did the same. Things you do for friends!

Este no es mi tema favorito, pero había quedado con un amigo que estaba dibujando esta pérgola. Lo que hacemos por los amigos!

Esta pérgola está longe de ser o meu tema favorito, mas tinha combinado com um amigo que estava a desenhá-la. O que fazemos pelos amigos!

781 / Templar walls / Tomar // Portugal


(following the previous post http://wp.me/pLtki-1fg )

Portugal one of the first places where the  Templar emporium began to settle. However, unlike what happened in other countries (especially in France), the relationship between the Crown and the Order of the Temple was probably very close.

One of the most important donations made ​​by D. Afonso I to the Order of the Temple was, around 1159, the territory of Nabância. Here , Gualdim Pais, founded Tomar. With its magnificent castle and one of the most significant churches erected at the image of the  Dome of the Rock (Santa Maria of Olives), Tomar has been one of the most influent Templar centers.
