Weekly Sketch – Wall Gate at Alcazaba of Málaga – 15/03/2015

Last year I visited the wonderful Alcazaba of Málaga; ‘alcazaba’ meaning fortress or citadel. It is a marvellous place to visit, impressive architectural forms around every corner, and beautiful views framed by graceful arches. It is the best preserved citadel of its kind in Spain, built in the early 11th century. Here is a line drawing study of a gate in one of the walls.

  1. Ah, I love this place, I went a couple of years ago, would love to visit it again. Great drawing, I’m trying to start drawing again and I love the directness of this image, and the inventive line, great stuff.

  2. Thanks Phil! I have lots more views to draw from the Alcazaba – I love it too. And I will be drawing this image a couple more times using different materials. I look forward to seeing your drawing experiments on your blog.
