Besides all the buildings by Gaudí, Barcelona is filled with other beautiful buildings and monuments, too. It makes for an enjoyable place to look around and sketch. Some of my favorite moments are just walking around and discovering, Like these views at Plaça de la Seu:
Even the lamp post with a bench along Passeig de Gràcia is so ornate! I love the graceful design and decoration (designed in 1906 by the architect Pere Falqués i Urpí) in what is usually an ordinary outdoor furniture.
This is a sketch from La Boqueria market, along with a view into the narrow medieval streets:
After a day of walking, I finally arrived at Illa de la Discòrdia with more ornate buildings to admire. But thick trees are covering most of the view, the sun is setting, the bulbs under umbrellas are lit, and people are getting out of work and starting to eat dinner. I thought it was appropriate to draw this to mark my sketching adventure for the day, to capture the feeling of thoroughly enjoying the city.
