View from the stairs in front of the FNAC. 240 Meetup #inkyfingersbarcelona . I did not have time to finish watercolouring, and then I realized that the sparing colouring was indeed avoiding cluttering/overstuffing. #barcelona #mnac #firabarcelona #sketch #sketchbook #skizzenbuch #carnetdecroquis #urbansketchers #uskbarcelona #usk #watercolour #watercolor #urbanlandscape
Col•legi Oficial d'Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC), 1962, architect Xavier Busquets. Inspired in Chicago skyscrapers, but small scale. Paintings done by sanding concrete, composed of cement and black gravel, according to designs created by Picasso. Recently rehabilitated, all dark panels in the upper facade are in fact solar panels, silkscreened with white dots in order not to look so black. #setmanaarquitectura

Church of San Siro alla Vepra in Milano.  A Neo-renaissance house was added at the beginning of the XX century to the remaining three apses of a Renaissance church from 1456. This house was renamed CASA TRISTE (sad house) because of prisoners being tortured there by a fascist group during 3 months in 1944. Nowadays it is a nun convent.

El Castell del Papiol, from the XII century, was one of the watch/defensive structures built in the Marca, the border with the territory occupied by Muslims. The town was under the fief of the Counts of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer III and Dolça de Provença. The second sketch during this delicious sketching morning, coordinated by @j.r.roy, within El Papiol cultural week. #elpapiol #baixllobregat #marcahispanica #castell #castle @descobreixcatalunya #enjoycatalonia #sketchbook #sketch #urbansketchers #uskbarcelona #uskcatalunya #usk #carnetdecroquis #skizzenbuch #watercolor #watchtower

Casa Batlló (1907), one of the most spectacular works by Antoni Gaudí, the most genial and world-known Catalan architect. Every year now, for Sant Jordi festivity, the balconies are clothed with large fake red roses, which cover  the ghostly skull masks. Sant Jordi is the Saint Patron of Catalonia. During this day, guys present a red rose to their beloved, and girls offer a book in exchange. In fact, everybody buys books for the beloved ones. April 23rd, Sant Jordi's day, has now become the World Book Day, under the auspice of UNESCO. Apart from being my own namesake, this is a gorgeous day for strolling around Barcelona, because you find everywhere stands selling red roses and books.

Ermita de Sant Pau (Saint Paul's Hermitage), from the XI century is the only remaining part of on ancient monastery, around which the village of Sant Pol was developped, and which was abandoned due to pests and civil wars.
