Earlier this month I took part in the 4th international Urban Sketchers' symposium, in Barcelona. You can read a bit about the visit, and see a few drawings of mine, over on the blog here: Post symposium sketching in Barcelona
Here are a few more sketches I did in my large watercolour moleskine - the first one of my co-instructor Marina Grechanik sketching in the Placa del Portal de la Pau.
This was my warm up sketch after the symposium was done - I couldn't concentrate on drawing during the symposium, what with giving a daily workshop, meeting so many people, and the general sensory overload of new city/heat/people on top.
Later that same day, at the last drink & draw meet-up at the CCCB, I did a quick portrait of fellow urban sketcher Shiem, who is one of the local Barcelona team. He speaks no English, and I speak no Spanish - but we all speak art, so that's all right.
Once I arrived back home again after this overwhelming trip, I settled in with a sofa-drawing - something simple and familiar to ground me.
It was a crazy summer, and a good one!
