I just returned from Lisbon a couple of days ago and I really miss the weather. The symposium was amazing, thank you to everyone who organised it! I picked up a lot of tips and bits of advise that I am now trying to keep together in my head every time I draw. Lisbon is a beautiful city, I met so many nice people, got to see a lot but still wanted to see so much more - so I think I'll be headed back once finances allow it. Here is a quick drawing from Sintra: the Fonte Mourisca. Even though it's not the main attraction, I think, it was my favourite thing to see there.
