Snapshots of Spain

My husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to travel to Spain (specifically the Basque region) last July. It was our first time to Europe and we were captivated by the beauty and history of the country.

I am just now going through photos of Spain - trying to decide which to enlarge and frame to hang in our home. I decided that I will start drawing some of the memories that we made and sharing them on my blog.

This illustration is of the hotel we stayed in the first night in Durango, Spain. I illustrated it in ink, painted various portions with watercolor, and then finished the color digitally.

This was one of the views outside our hotel.

The details in Spain's walkways make our sidewalks seem so boring...


  1. Lovely. Spain is pretty high on our "must see" list, but for now I'm happy to live vicariously through your photos and illustrations. :)

  2. The illustration of the hotel in Durango, Spain is one of my new favorites. I also love the coat rack with the scarves.
