Las Palmas


We´ve been on a week´s vacation to Las Palmas (Gran Canaria). LP a great place to be - not too many tourists, great weather (i.e. not too hot and never cold), lots to see and do and great environments to sketch in. The city is a bit dirty and worn, and full of interesting people. Just the way I like it when I´m drawing. I´ll be posting a few of my sketchbook pages during next week.

13,5 x 18,5 cm, Lamy Safari with Noodler´s Lexington gray ink and watercolours on sketchbook pages.

Sounds like a real treat, Nina. I love your luggage, makes me want to hop on a plane. The flowers are so vibrant and my favourite is your contour palm.

Wow! I love the aeroplane sketch!! Now I really look forward to our trip to Arlanda airport on April 4!
Lucky you to leave gray Stockholm for a week and get some lovely sun! I look forward to see more of your great work form the trip.
Hugs from Carina

I had not popped in here since Sept. Nice work you've been doing! Love the bones, your watercolors of buildnings are always wonderful as well! Have a great trip!

I love that plane sketch! And the luggage is great too. I'm so jealous of you, I used to work in Gran Canaria and I loved it so much, I think it's time we went back for a holiday... can't wait to see more sketches from LP.
