On the beach, draw in Sardinia

 

Just to show what it’s like drawing and painting outdoors in Sardinia in summer, here’s a quiet western beach and a simple ballpoint pen sketch.

The town of Oviedo, Asturias, Spain.

 

The town of Oviedo is in the autonomous Asturias region of northern Spain, between the sea Mar Cantabrico (or Bay of Biscay) and the Cantabria Range. Oviedo is the starting point of the Original Way or Camino Primitivo to Santiago de Compostela.
The medieval part of town, whose thirteenth century walls are still largely intact, consists of three streets running north-south and a principal route running from east to west.
In this case, or when it’s a street scene, normally I approach the painting in this way: quickly draw in a series of people, at different sizes of course, then draw the background afterwards and not doing too much detail for the background.

Painting Verona: stairway for Castel San Pietro in watercolor.

 

One of the most suggestive places in Verona and gratifying to cross. This stairway begins at via Stefano from an extremity of the old Stone Bridge and goes on the Hill St. Pietro up to the homonym castle. In this case, I have made only an express sketch standing and I have completed subsequently everything because I was in front of the semaphore and in the middle of  people that passed.
It is a good method that helps to develop the skills of observation and to memorize the details.
Simply, the principal elements of the composition are drawn and  later are written which colors will be used in the different areas.
This is just one of a series of watercolor paintings done on these stairways, that offer beautiful views of the city and the surrounding hills. Step by step tutorial available for this watercolor painting, for more info email me at info@streetdrawingsmauser.net.
