Back to the silvery grey light of England after a week of golden sunshine in Cordoba, Spain. I’ll scan and post the sketches over the next few weeks, including many attempts to capture the Holy Week parades (tall pointy hats, huge religious floats, big marching bands, massive crowds…). In the meantime here’s mid afternoon in the shade of the Court of Oranges, and evening sun on the minaret/bell tower of the Mezquita, the mosque/cathedral in the centre of Cordoba.

I live in Jaen, pretty near to Cordoba – your pictures are very evocative of both the Mezquita and it’s adjoining courtyard! I look forward to seeing your Semana Santa images!
Thanks Iva, I bumped into another sketcher while I was there, Alvaro Carmona who does lovely architectural drawings. He said there’s a sketching group in Cordoba, but not as active or large as the Malaga one! Ed
Wow! I’ve just seen the Malaga facebook page – I see what you mean! will certainly check out one of those groups if I ‘m in the area!
Those are some really nice sketches! I long for summer and look forward to seeing more!
Thanks Viktoria. I’ll post the Semana Santa parade ones tomorrow for Easter Sunday. Ed
Welcome back! Looks like a real beautiful place you went to, can’t wait to see more.
Thanks. Excellent recent sketches by the way. My favourites are the fried eggs, the practise watercolour landscapes (very clear and loose), and the sheep skull. Ed
I was in Cordoba last October….you captured what I saw!
Thanks Rebecca. I recommend Holy Week for your next visit. It’s a very family friendly atmosphere, and the children would love the spectacle and drama! Ed
