The workshops that I feel I got the most out of at the symposium both gave out these great little booklets. This was really helpful to refer back to when I was out there sketching…
I have taken photos of the pages to share the fantastic info that the instructors gave me.
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.
