Around Funchal

More from Madeira, three general views around the capital. The first is from a rocky beach (they’re all rocky on Madeira…) near the harbour, buildings crowding the crumbling cliff. Then looking down a central street towards the surrounding hills, cloud descending. Finally a view from the harbour up to the hills, with more clouds wrapping around the peaks. All in brush-pen (just dilute ink in the last one, hence the washed out look), with the ever-useful white gel pen for fiddly bits.




Lexington grey in brush-pen and water-brush, water-colour and white gel pen, A5 – 30 mins each
