From my sketchbook: Spain & Italy trip 2013!

I spent the second half of March vacationing with friends in Spain and Italy. We rented a car and drove around Tuscany, then flew to Barcelona for a few days as well. I didn't sketch as heavily on some previous trips (mostly because it rained almost every day in Italy) but I got a couple of good ones in :)
Cortona, Italy
I sat in the Piazza della Repubblica on some steps to sketch, looking very much like a hobo.

Port Vell, Barcelona, Spain
Took advantage of a lovely sunny day to sit by the docks and draw.

Inspired by the earlier boats, I did this cute circles watercolor...would be nice for a little boy's room.

Montserrat, Spain
It was a bit chilly up there so I only had the patience (and warmth) for a quick pen sketch!
Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona, Spain
I wasn't exactly sure what an umbracle (shade house) was at first, but it made a nice place to sit!

And here's a circles watercolor inspired by the lovely Tuscan hills:

  Trip photos to match coming soon, I promise!


  1. Cool! The second one down is my favorite - the pencil sketch of the boats.

  2. Thanks Mike! That's my favorite too :)
