Today I've worked a little bit MORE with my travel sketch book. This scene above was only a pencil sketch done during the Watercolor Workshop with Joseph Zbukvic, organized by EPC Art Courses, Angela Barbi in September 2018 and done during on of our lunch breaks. For many reasons I couldn't stop painting during this time and so I uses every single moment to catch up this very special atmosphere of this marvelous city. Today I've tried with some loose color splashes bring it to life. I hope you enjoy my small series of SOUTHERN CORNERS. I've created a similar at my photo blog -> SOUTHERN CORNERS

Today I've worked a little bit with my travel sketch book. This scene above was only a pencil sketch done during the Watercolor Workshop with Joseph Zbukvic, organized by EPC Art Courses, Angela Barbi in September 2018. Included in this puristic sketch are a lot of memories and so I've tried to give them life in this colored version of the sketch. It was a very hot afternoon at this day and I sat side by side with a good new friend under a sun umbrella and we both sketch this corner on the Placa del Prat de Sant Pere, Besalú while drinking a very tasty café cortado.

I like this panorama format a lot and with a passe-partout and a white frame it looks fantastic. Okay, it's not so easy to take a photo from it and all these internet presentation don't fits with it, but who cares :D
