One of the pencil illustrations I recently made in Tenerife
, Spain. You can view the sketch in progress here
. I also wrote the text in the drawing, which is saying:
"Dear friend, I'm writing to tell you that I recently discovered a sunny island called Tenerife. A rocky island that only exists thanks to Teide, a huge volcano. This is a beautiful black sand island surrounded by deep blue seas. A unique place that attracts curious people, lovers and families from everywhere around the world, thanks to its perfect climate and thanks to all the facilities it offers to millions of visitors every year.
This is an island people usually visit to relax but you can also find many secret treasures. This magic place welcomes the people willing to recharge their batteries but also the wild adventurers who prefer to live intense moments and admire Mother Nature from a different perspective. There are small traditional villages everywhere in Tenerife. There are also big cities with futuristic buildings and monuments where the local workers meet the people who party all night...
If you travel there, you might have the great chance to walk in the mountains or in the forests, to enjoy the sun and the beaches, to swim with dolphins or even turtles, to do some surf or any other aquatic sports, to eat some typical food or drink local wines, to meet friendly people, to find countless hidden treasures, to party all night with good people and with good music...
Whatever you decide to do in Tenerife and whatever happens to you during your trip, you will not be the same person anymore upon your return. This island will give you so much energy and good vibrations that you might choose to move there permanently, bring your whole family and start living a new life, a better life... And when you will have seen everything, if you ever manage to do so, then you might consider discovering the other Canary Islands, all of them are connected by regular domestic flights or by ferry.
El Hierro is the smallest of the 7 major islands. Fuerteventura is the most ancient Island and the most eroded one. Gran Canaria offers amazing landscapes and is famous for its dunes. La Gomera is also one of the oldest islands of the archipelago. Lanzarote is known for its special colors and architecture highly influenced by Cesar Manrique. La Palma is an entire biosphere and the second highest island of the Canaries... Dear Traveller, all I'm saying is that it is worth visiting Tenerife. This is why I am sitting here in this sketch!"
