30 Day Drawing Challenge. Day 4.

Day 4 is favourite place. 

One of my favourite places that I have visited is The Alhambra, an Islamic Palace in Grenada, Spain. The Andalusia area of Spain is so beautiful  and the influence of Islamic architecture and decoration is evident. I fell in love with details and colour at The Alhambra, particularly the tiles and arabesque carving so I wanted to create a few sketchy and bright drawings that focussed on details that I remember from there. 

I used Tria Marker pens to create the big areas of colour and the biro to create a bit of definition. In the second sketch I have drawn over the coloured blocks with a image of the arches in the Court Of Lions.

Thanks for looking.

Tomorrow may be interesting as I will be travelling back down to London... So lets see what happens!
