Madrid/Spain[RESULTS]

I took advantage of the recent and unusual snow in Madrid and headed for El Retiro, a great park right in the middle of town. The sun had not yet melted down the snow so I had the chance of drawing a bit with another (shy) sketcher.

I read about the snowstorm the other day in our paper. Glad you were able to capture it before it melted. Wonderful snow sketches!!!

Thanks to all.
Oporto: no problem about drawing in the snow. As you see in the photo it was a clear, sunny day not too cold. I sketched these spreads the day after the snowing and a couple of them more the very same day. You can see them here http://www.4ojos.com/blog/?p=1064

One more time!!! Stunning sketches 4ojos!!!
Wonderful compositions indeed, also love the way you captured the light!
I've flicked through your Flickr photostream & your blog few times since the last SketchCrawl and I can't believe how prolific you are!!!
How do you manage to produce so much and with such quality!?!?! You really must have 4 eyes and 4 hands too!!!
I take my hat off!
Regards from Barcelona!
All the best!

Muy bellos
los primeros de la nieve podrían inspirar un concept art para una película de cine
Me gusta mucho que no tengan linea de contorno, se sienten más expresivos
