Spain/Portugal #1

I went to Spain and Portugal a lil' before Avcon. Here are some pen and watercolor sketches of the first few days traveling and in Barcelona.
 
In the lounges.
 Alleys and streets. Lots of them.
The clean and bright Sagrada Familia sure contrasts with the (much much older) Barcelona Cathedral. I think my Camera just made it look particularly grim. 
I love little details like this. Looks like Medieval people used dogs for nap time foot cushions. Fascinating.
Rivalry between the two churches...(I like anthropomorphizing things okay.)
Gorgeous architecture everywhere you look.  
Although Disneyland may attempt to emulate it, this is the real deal.
...and I love castle architecture too. This is Castle Montjuïc. Will share more later!
