ABOUT THE ART
Porís de Candelaria #onthedraw in La Palma - Canary Islands
7 illustrators were invited to Teneriffe, The Canary Islands. At a press conference they were each given an Island, a local illustrator guide, a sketchbook and a hash tag, #onthedraw. The mission: to sketch the island over 6 days then return home to create 6 illustrations each for a group exhibition back in Teneriffe 6 weeks later.
My guide on LA Palma was a very talented local illustrator, Victor Jaubert and Kevin was our translator.

We spent a whole day at PorIs de Candelaria, a old fishing village situated under an enormous overhanging cliff used by locals as a weekend get away. Berto, our host, prepared the best Paella ever over a BBQ, washed down with some incredible home made red wine - an amazing day :))
