The day before the symposium, photo highlights
Walked up to the Castelo, loved the view. Sketched, and snapped lots of photos. Walked a
Lot! Lunch, a cheese sandwich, checked out the school and found urban Sketchers starting to mill around. Anticipating the start of the symposium!
Photo highlights of my Lisbon experience, days three and four.
Exploring Chiado on my own and day trip to Sintra with Orling
Back in the US, I’m remembering, quite fondly, my trip to Lisbon.
Leaving Portland, arriving in Lisbon and first two days there, photo highlights.
I really enjoyed Nina Johannson’s workshop, Unfinished business. She gave us a nice
little booklet with tips and exercises. The idea is to leave parts of your sketch unfinished. Draw various details, signs, etc to add more to the page. Simplify your sketch. Collect signs on a page. Leave parts of the sketch uncolored. There are probably tips I’m forgetting, but you maybe get the idea. Now, here are the sketches I did in Largo Camoes?
My last day in Lisbon photo highlights:
Sketched alone on the morning, after breakfast at the hostel with Judith, Orling and Gerard. Lunch was a scrambled egg sandwich. Hot day, so back to the hostel to pack up and chill out, which included a half an hour nap. Cappuccino in Chiado, ran into Liz and Paul. dinner at the hostel with Orling. Bedtime.
Day 3 highlights (wow! All I can really say is WOW! What an amazing day…what an amazing symposium!) in photos:
