My Mallorcan sketches

All my sketches from our Mallorcan Holiday in the beautiful Soller Valley:
Puerto Soller boatyard - our breakfast view over a cappuccino con crema & Napolitano chochlatino (not sure about the spelling!)

 Can Prohom high above the Soller Valley - good welcome and good cake and fresh orange.
 Soller Cathedral - right hand entrance porch from over a cool Coke at CafĂ© Aro at Placa Constitucio.

 Placa d' Espanya at Fornalutx where we met the Policia Locale who helped find the wallet I lost last September

 Fishing boats in the corner of the marina at Puerto Soller below the old monastery now a maritime museum.

 The old monastery at Puerto Soller viewed from lunchtime at the Nautilus Bar. The view vertically down to the Mediterranean is absolutely spectacular!

I was sitting under the ramp up to the Town Hall in Soller at the Placa Constituticio to sketch this one looking towards the Carrer de Vives. This was my final sketch.

 The Tobacos at Placa Constitucio, Soller over a cool San Miguel at Bar Firo

The upper lighthouse overlooking the Puerto Soller Bay. This sketch is from over lunch at the picnic tables to the Refugi.
The lower and disused lighthouse at the entrance to Puerto Soller - looks good from any direction!

This was the view from our first cappuccino and cake breakfast in the Port. I wasn't quite warmed up.

Duomo di Siena, Italy

Duomo di Siena from the terrace alongside the Basilica Cateriniana San Domenico. I think I'll stop the painting there.

Hughes major and mini minor

Family lunchtime at our home on Sundays. Ezra our 2 year old grandson wanted to do a bit of drawing this afternoon. Mixed media. Coloured pencils and crayons - combined effort. He was most fascinated by the effect of colouring around and over masking tape, then removing it. Think he might have covered the paper completely.... perhaps in the future. Now back to my other pieces of artwork.

My view of Barkers Pool Sheffield

I was up 'til 2.30 this morning to get this far - just couldn't stop! I even straightened the guttering on the red building - perhaps I should have done that on the original detail design drawings I helped on in 1986! Need to erase all the dirty marks left by my T-square, yes T-square, I'm a bit of a Luddite, or maybe re-writing history as is the fad for the last 5 years.
