bcn2013usk - first sketchcrawl
yesterday was the first public event, a sketchcrawl along some of the most emblematic modernist building of barcelona. many sketchers join at 10:00 in front of "sant pau" hospital (of lluís domènech i montaner):
than we walk done avenida gaudi until the north facade of the sagrada familia (of antoni gaudi). there were nearly more sketchers than tourists around:
it's where I met suhita, the symposium correpondant, for the first time. I'm impressed, she's quick!!
than came the time for a tipical catalan dish: "arroz negro", yummy!
and we walk until the "casa de les punxes" (of josep puig i cadafalch):
I know that some sketchers continue until "passeig de gracia" and the "pedrera" (of antoni gaudi), but I had to go to the inauguration of the exhibition "sketching barcelona" in sala ciutat where the all collection of travel books published by city council is exhibit, included my last book "barcelona m'inspira".
we have a late diner in born district, it was time to go home, this morning the symposium is starting early!
