Urban Portraits

  • Largo S. Pedro de Alcantara

Workshop project: to capture the people on their urban environment, queuing for transport, for ice cream, gazing, working, speeding along, sitting in outdoor places.Using pen or brush work at different speeds with quick movements where the action will be registered more than the subject or slower trying to imply by its body talk and clothes some information about the person or persons. Never forgetting the space that involves the characters, Lisbon being such a charming city, how to describe places in a few strokes.

Projeto: capturar as pessoas no meio urbano, a fazer bichas para os transportes, para o gelado, a admirar, a andar rapido, sentadas nos cafés. Utilizando canetas ou pincel, vamos trabalhar a diferentes ritmos, com movimentos rápidos onde a acção será registada ao detrimento da personagem/s ou mais lentamente criando uma ideia da personagem/s pelo nossos registos da linguagem corporal e a roupa.Tendo sempre em conta o espaço que envolve os personagens, Lisboa sendo uma cidade cheia de charme, como desenhar as suas características em poucas marcas.
