Sketching a view towards Santa Cruz, Alicante

Those of you that follow my posts may have seen my sketch looking over the city towards the cathedral – sketching in Alicante. That was a view from the back of the old town at Santa Cruz towards the city. I went back to a spot near-by and did another view, this time towards the west and the chapel of Saint Roc and Church of Santa Cruz – but first a matter of a few steps up…

This is my view towards the Chapel of Saint Roc – and the wind-swept tree behind it is in the courtyard of the Church of Santa Cruz – also a good place for views over the city.

…and another view – almost finished.

Below is my finished scanned drawing. This is one of my drawings that I intend to turn into a painting though the amount of detail makes that a little daunting. As you can probably tell from the photos it was a balmy evening, warm and sunny. With the city below gearing up for another Friday evening it was time to head back down in search of somewhere to eat.
