Catalan pyrenees

The Aigüestortes y Estany St. Maurici National Park is in the catalonian part of the pyrenees (about 60 km west of Andorra).

I did these drawings in july, on a three day hiking trip from Boí to Espot. We spent the whole day walking,  with me getting blisters on my feet in the process and then resting those very tired feet on the rocky ground, sleeping under the open sky. A great trip, thanks mostly to my more adventurous, persistent and knowledgeable comrade from the alpes, Erica.
I decided i´d rather take food and a sleeping bag than art supplies-so it was just a black micron and a muji brush pen, and the smallest, thinnest sketchbook  i had.
I´m glad i had to go all minimalistic on these ones.

  1. Excellent!
    I did the same hike in 2008.
    You catch the sublime with some black ink strokes.
    It reminds me of some Caspar Friedrich sketches.
