Travel Sketchbook

"Sketching is not about doing "good" drawings or paintings. It is about being in the moment, about putting aside expectations and judgment and letting the hand record what the eyes see..." Travelling is inspiring, enriching and I love to experience and capture my favourite moments and places in my little sketchbook whenever possilbe. Here's sharing with you some of them.
 My travel sketchbook

The Alhambra in Granada, on a sunny winter afternoon, as seen from one of the rooftops of El Albayzín. Loved the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background.

 The Mirador San Nicolas - with a great view to the Alhambra and the sunset in Granada.

Rooftops of the Spanish town of Ronda in Andalucia. Sketched while taking a break by the roadside and soaking up the afternoon sun.

 A small structure right outside the main palace of Alhambra - another specimen of Moorish architecture in Spain.
