Best thing about urban sketching: food

Well, ok, I do enjoy the drawing part a lot, of course, but the social part plays a big role.

I love the lunches or snacks we have together after the workshops and the meetups.

It is not the same without them.

The picture is today’s workshop production.

Mum, do the boats have legs?

This morning we had a drawing class at the artificial lake in Campo Grande.

We were actually drawing the scenery/people from inside the boat. Which was quite challenging because when you are not rowing, the boat starts drifting so the view keeps changing.

Still, a lot of fun, plus I was in a boat with 2 women I have grown close to.

And then this little french song from when I was a child came to my mind:

Mummy, do the boats that move in the water have legs? Of course, silly, if they didn’t, they wouldn’t walk!

Vivian Maier: what an inspiring photographer!

Didn’t even know she existed until a few months ago, when I bought an online illustration course and the teacher mentioned her as one of his artistic influence.

I hadn’t even realized there was an exhibition of her work near Lisbon and I almost missed it, but luckily it was extended until next Tuesday.

This was how I felt this Saturday, as I finally was able to book my Covid vaccine for the 29th of may.

But now my mood just fizzled out. Just got a text from my landlord saying I have to give the apartment back to him until May 31st, and I can’t understand why, as the law had suspended the end of the contracts until June 30th.

Still trembling…

Off to take something to help me sleep…
