Travel Sketchbook: Portugal, Cascais Sept 08

In September 08, I went to Cascais in Portugal with my marching band. What a great long weekend. The weather was beautiful beautiful and the temperature was cooler like the U.K. I decided to do a travel sketchbook after the success of my cathedral sketches. So Portugal was my first attempt at capturing the foreign surroundings.

I did a few warm-up sketches, the statue of the soldier and the medieval wall. the last picture is of a hotel on the beach of Cascais. The best drawing i've done and it will be hard to better it. I'm very proud of the hotel sketch and the building itself is beautiful, we marched on the plaza near the building. Portugal was fantastic!
