Portugal travel Sketches

Hi there! Here are some pages of my Portugal Travel Watercolor sketchbook
portugal-watercolor-sketchbook

So our travel took place in my travel sketchbook as well. In order not to miss the feelings of a place and get it inside fully you have to sketch it right away.
  So when we arrived in Porto, I sketched it right in the airport:

Morning coffee and the market

The locals and Sé Cathedral.
And, before leaving, I drew our hotel room.

and so beautiful Sao Domengo church that was almost totally burnt in 1959 and still isn't recovered which is so captivating to see

But we had to go to Coimbra 

Coimbra, the 1st University of Portugal and its first capital.
Here is Coimbra Sé Cathedrale

We lived there, in the yellow little house up there:
