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.

Here you can see some pages of my sketchbook...
