Lisbon seemed to be the perfect city for an urban sketcher, and over the course of three days I met lots of great people, some new faces, some of whom I had met in Portland, and many who I had followed online for years and could not believe I was sitting there sketch alongside them. A huge thank you to all those who oragnized this event, and to everybody who came.</p><br /> <P>Portugal is a lovely place, and the people were very friendly.&nbsp;I stayed at the <A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/11/shiado-hostel/">Shiado Hostel</a> on rua Anchietta, along with some other urban sketchers. And then there are the <A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/10/lisbon-hydrants/">fire hydrants</a>...</p><br /> <P><A title="hydrant rua santa justa by petescully, on Flickr" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/petescully/6028437616/"><IMG alt="hydrant rua santa justa" src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6073/6028437616_3f45cded87.jpg" width=310 height=475 /></a><A title="lisbon hydrant by petescully, on Flickr" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/petescully/5999317306/"><IMG alt="lisbon hydrant" src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6002/5999317306_35d1f066e3.jpg" width=280 height=465 /></a> </p><br /> <P>Since returning from the symposium I have been trying to scan and post my drawings, and it has been a long slow process. I have symposium-hangover. I have done a fair bit of sketching too (how can we stop?), taking in each of the things I learnt in Lisbon, and moving forward with my own personal sketchbooking. I've been posting about the workshops and events from Lisbon on my website; if you're interested please pop by and take a look! </p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/05/exploring-chiado/">Day One: Exploring Chiado</a></strong></p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/08/unfinished-business/">Day One: Unfinished Business</a></strong></p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/08/from-the-lecture-hall/">From the Lecture Hall</a></strong></p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/09/lisbon-perspectives/">Day Two: Lisbon Perspectives</a></strong></p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/09/light-of-lisboa/">Day Two: Light of Lisboa</a></strong></p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/12/contrastes/">Day Three: Contrastes</a></strong></p><br /> <P><STRONG><A href="http://petescully.com/2011/08/15/sketchcrawl-32-lisbon/">Day Three: Worldwide Sketchcrawl 32</a></strong></p><br /> <P><A title="contrastes rua bica by petescully, on Flickr" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/petescully/6024532585/"><IMG alt="contrastes rua bica" src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6084/6024532585_2a6a5fa3f6_z.jpg" width=620 height=440 /></a> </p><br /> <P>Where will the next one be?

My name is Zoraida and I'm a literary translator living in Barcelona. I'm amazed by the beautiful sketches I've seen in this blog. I like to draw but I'm totally self-taught, so the symposium workshops will be my very first art lessons. I feel privileged!</p><br /> <P>The plane tickets are already bought and I just need to book a hotel room. It's always exciting to plan a trip to Lisbon, which is my favorite city in the world. Last summer I stayed there for about two months. This is the view I had from my room at Rua dos Fanqueiros:</p><br /> <P>&nbsp;<img src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/Column_Half_420px/blog/lisboa%201.jpg" width="420" height="300" /></p><br /> <P>And this is a sketch I made at the pleasant Praça do Príncipe Real:</p><br /> <P>&nbsp;<img src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/Column_Half_420px/blog/lisboa%202.jpg" width="420" height="308" /></p><br /> <P>Looking forward to see you all in Lisbon,</p><br /> <P>Zoraida</p><br /> <P>"Arsaytoma" in Flickr: <A href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/arsaytoma-zoraida/">http://www.flickr.com/photos/arsaytoma-zoraida/</a></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-blog-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="1040" height="744" alt="" src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/blog/lisboa%201.jpg?1304934820" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="1026" height="753" alt="" src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/blog/lisboa%202.jpg?1304934993" /> </div> </div> </div> <ul class="custom-pager custom-pager-bottom"> <li class="previous"><a href="/blog/canada-looking-forward-learn-more">‹ previous</a></li> <li class="key">44 of 219</li> <li class="next"><a href="/blog/week-amarante">next ›</a></li> </ul> http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/blog/hello-barcelona#comments Lisboa Lisbon Urban Sketchers symposium Mon, 09 May 2011 10:04:24 +0000 Arsaytoma 228 at http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org Environments workshop http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/blog/environments-workshop <p><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qs0hlepRAD0/TblIiS6EdTI/AAAAAAAABjQ/z3F_aLLUrbo/s1600/Enviroments_Lisbon_02.1.jpg"><img src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/Column_Wide_700px/blog/Enviroments_Lisbon_02_1.jpg" class="imagecache-Column_Wide_700px" width="700" height="494" /></a></p> <p>Last week I went to sketch Escadinhas do Duque, <a href="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sessions/escadas-do-duque-0">workshop</a> location where <a href="http://hakunamatatayeto.blogspot.com/">I</a> and <a href="http://norbertodorantes.blogspot.com/">Norberto Dorantes</a> we'll have the pleasure of being with so many enthusiastic urbansketchers.</p> <p>Staircase's view to Lisbon's downtown is amazing as well as the whole atmosphere of taverns and people passing to Bairro Alto, nightlife preferably local of most Lisbon people.</p> <p>We are waitingfor all you guys here in Lisbon, anxious to draw together!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="line-height: normal; font-size: 12px;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kUySPt6AuXg/TblIh2Q-evI/AAAAAAAABjI/729y25b4cw0/s1600/Enviroments_Lisbon_01.1.jpg"><img src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/Column_Wide_700px/blog/Enviroments_Lisbon_01_2.jpg" class="imagecache-Column_Wide_700px" width="700" height="491" /></a></span></p> <p>A semana passada fui desenhar nas Escadinhas do Duque, local do <a href="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sessions/escadas-do-duque-0">workshop</a> onde <a href="http://hakunamatatayeto.blogspot.com/">eu</a> e o <a href="http://norbertodorantes.blogspot.com/">Norberto Dorantes</a> vamos ter o prazer de estar com tantas pessoas entusiastas pelo desenho.</p> <p>Nas Escadinhas, a vista para a baixa da cidade de Lisboa é incrível, assim como todo o ambiente de tascas e pessoas que as percorrem rumo ao Bairro Alto, local de preferência nas saídas nocturnas da maioria dos lisboetas.</p> <p>Cá vos esperamos em Lisboa, ansiosos por desenhar juntos!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-blog-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="1000" height="706" alt="" src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/blog/Enviroments_Lisbon_02_1.jpg?1304181257" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="1000" height="702" alt="" src="http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/sites/default/files/blog/Enviroments_Lisbon_01_2.jpg?1304181429" /> </div> </div> </div> <ul class="custom-pager custom-pager-bottom"> <li class="previous"><a href="/blog/rua-do-alecrim-0">‹ previous</a></li> <li class="key">38 of 219</li> <li class="next"><a href="/blog/hello-johannesburg">next ›</a></li> </ul> http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org/blog/environments-workshop#comments Environments workshop Lisbon Mário Linhares Sat, 30 Apr 2011 16:42:51 +0000 Mario Linhares 220 at http://lis2011.urbansketchers.org
