One of the most anticipated events of this year – Urban Sketchers Symposium in Barcelona. I traveled to what used to be my home – the noisy, artistic, humid, smelly, touristy, but endlessly enchanting–Barcelona. I got to hang out with the most amazing artists from all over the world, speak four languages in a course of one evening, translate the workshops of great Norberto Dorantes, party with the Andalusians till 2 am, sketch, sketch, and sketch. So much anticipation and so short of a time to actually be there. No regrets. It was amazing!
|Sketching Palau de la Múcica Catalana was a bit too overwhelming for me, so I settled for a quick sketch of the buildings across the street.|
