One quick and one slightly more elaborated sketchbook page from Las Palmas (actually the top line drawing is from a little town called Teror up in the mountains). The one below has already been up on Urban Sketchers, some of you may have seen it already.
I love the houses in Las Palmas, they are incredibly inspiring to draw. There are all kinds of buildings in this city; industrial sites, luxurious villas, huge apartment complexes and glossy store fronts, but the houses I like best are the ones with this worn look, with little shops or minimercados in them. They are somewhere between two and six storeys high, and full of signs of life - drying laundry, people going in and out, dogs walking by, someone shouting something from a window. The traffic in these streets is vivid, and there´s always something going on around the next corner.
