Sunny day here in Madrid. We had an appointment in TABACALERA http://latabacalera.net/, a state owned old tobacco factory that has become a key spot of blooming cultural activity. I spent the day there, did some 15 sketches, and ate delicious senegalese food. More photos and scans to follow
Well, 4ojos, I see that your fine mustache is just flourishing. ..Enjoying your sketches and am looking forward to the rest. I do like that lo-ong picture of the street and buildings that you pieced together, though I am surprised how well it fits together. annie
A group of us (9-10) met in Madrid, in Lavapies quarter, at noon in a sunny marvellous day. After a first stop at a square near Sombrerete street, we made a break for some tapas and beers. After that we joined at a cultural centre, former tobacco-makers building (la tabacalera) to keep drawing. And finally we had a loooong lunch at a terrace till 19:30h. Here are my drawings:

(Un saludo a todos los que compartieron el dia de dibujos, aunque pareciese que jugamos al ratón y al gato. La Corrala y la Plaza de Agustín Lara, donde arrancásteis el dia, me las tengo dibujadísimas y preferí no salir del edificio de Tabacalera.)
Lo pasé muy bien, solo me di tiempo para este dibujo, en la plaza, pero disfruté mucho de las cañas también! I had a great time, only time for this drawing, in the square, but I enjoyed the drinks as well:
Gran dia en muy buena compañia, disfruté mucho dibujando y charlando, esperando la siguiente. Un abrazo a todos y felicitaros por vuestros dibujos. Francis Great day in very good company, enjoyed drawing and talking, waiting for the next. A hug to all and congratulations for your drawings. Francis http://www.franciscogomezjarillo.com
Great contributions, Joaquín, Ben and Francis! Francis: el que has hecho de la estructura industrial oxidada está especialmente bien: no haberle dado color ayuda a transmitir la imagen de decadencia y desbarajuste.
Hi Francisco Gomez! Thanks for looking at our crawl in Tallahassee Florida USA. We really like your all your group's art! Francis' black and white building and 4-eyed -octopus' juxtaposed striped ladies are my favorites:thumbup: mark fletcher
Agree with Luis, I couldn't wait to see the result form Madrid. 4ojos - Brilliant works as usual! I especially love those two-toned ones and the girl sits square on her seat in the bar! Joaquin - Lovely and lively town view and very nice portraits of fellow sketchers! spanishben - Nice detail of the building in the back ground! Francis - The image of the last one is so powerful and well depicted!
