Clouds over Elvas

Some heavy clouds insisted on participating in the 26th sketch meeting of Urban Sketchers Raia in Elvas, so some experimenting with wet-on-rain watercolor was in order.

Algumas nuvens pesadas insistiam em participar no 26º encontro dos Urban Sketchers da Raia em Elvas. Impunham-se experiências com aguarela-sobre-chuva.

By the end of the afternoon, both sketchers and rain called it a day. The clouds to the west caught fire, under the watchful eyes of the medieval castle and the 17th century Forte da Graça.

Ao fim da tarde, desenhadores e chuva deram por findo o dia. As nuvens a poente ardiam sob os olhares vigilantes do castelo medieval e do seiscentista Forte da Graça.

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!
