ILLUSTRATING AT THE BOTANICAL GARDEN MARIMURTRA

Summer 2018 I had the wonderful opportunity to spend two months at the Botanic Garden MARIMURTRA, emplaced in a privileged and beautiful location over the coastline in Blanes, Spain.
It was found by the german Carl Faust in 1921, a businessman who dedicate all his fortune to make his dream come true, the Botanical Garden Marimurtra.

During my time there, besides collaborating in gardening tasks, I was able to observe and take pictures of some beautiful specimens, colorful flowers that bloom in summer, and use them to do my illustrations.
