I had always wanted to visit Gaudí's main architectural projects, most of them located in and around Barcelona, so last summer I decided to go ahead and do it..
I love Barcelona, it´s a fantastic city. I have always been fascinated by Gaudi´s amazing architecture, above all by the Sagrada Família, but I never really got a good look at it.
I was delighted to revisit familiar smells like those of roasted peppers and aubergines, a classic combination in Catalan cuisine and a flavour that transports me to the best of my childhood family meals.
I will take you to my favourite tapas places through my sketchbook and using watercolours, pencils and marker pens. Here you will find a tapas journey across Barcelona and discover the best places and their incredible culinary delights in mini TOP TAPAS BARCELONAversion. Enjoy your tapas trip!
I have been drawing throughout the Catalan wine landscapes while travelling with my family in our old Citroën C15 van. We have been to renowned cellars, visited charming villages, met people devoted to wine and climbed mountains full of vines. Don't hesitate to take your car to see all the Catalan DO (Designation of Origin) areas and enjoy typical food and delightful wines.
I started sketching “moments” because capturing time seemed the most important thing to me. This is possibly why I concentrate on light; the most ephemeral aspect of the places we illustrate.
I first declared my love for the city by publishing the book « Barcelona m’inspira », a compilation of discoveries, portraits, old shops and skylines. Now I would like to celebrate my favourite style by dedicating this book to Art Nouveau in Barcelona, beyond Gaudí already well-known buildings.
I invite you to pass by the Palau de la Música, the Parc de la Ciutadella or the Hospital de Sant Pau. Enjoy your visit!
Juliet has revisited El Born, where she had her studio for years. The web of its streets, the medieval palaces, Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum, its human scale… all invites to explore and sketch.
Sketching Palau Güell was a real challenge, and it was highly gratifying to portray everything surrounding it and decipher Gaudi’s mastery.
Park Güell is a wonderful place to get entranced by its lines and colours. I invite you to this short journey of sketches through one of the most surprising and magical sites of the gaudí universe. I hope you have fun in park güell, just as I have enjoyed sketching it!
