Barcelona, Spain [RESULTS]

Postby eclecticbox » Mon Nov 23, 2009 12:55 am

Hi everybody!

This time we decided to sketch around ¨El Parq de la Ciutadela¨, it's the second park in size in the city and hosts the Zoo, the Zoology and the Geologic Museums of Barcelona amongst other interesting spots.
Some of us (JasonLi, Victor ¨Swasky¨, Jordi & Teresa) met at 11am next to the Zoology Museum entrance and went into it to start sketching.
Here are the first drawings, that I inked and coloured with markers later on at home.
Some Stag Beetles

The Shell's Room with Jordi sketching along
Image
The sun came out and we decided to went outside for the next sketches.
Inspired by the always wonderful water colours of Enrique Flores ¨4ojos¨ from Madrid (http://www.4ojos.com/blog/?p=2299) I pushed myself to work straight on with that media (and with no previous pencil) and see what I could come up with, that one is my view of the band stand and obviously I'm miles away from Enrique :wink:
Image
My take on the Cascade Fountain (which is a French-style fountain designed jointly by Fontsere and Gaudi and recently restored)
Image
To take a break of the water colours I also did a pencil detail of the fountain
Image
To that point, Jordi and Teresa had to leave but Carmen, Aurelie and Lapin joined us. Already lunchtime we went to ¨La Rambla del Born¨ to get a snack and go back to the park with renewed energies.
That's another water colour of one of the islands in the middle of the small lake
Image
After a while, people started to leave as the sun was hiding, Lapin and I went back to the Zoology Museum for a bit more sketching
The main room interior on the 2nd floor
Image
And Lapin sketching some animal skeletons
Image
We finally left the Museum and went for a drink, after that Lapin took me to an incredible shop right next to calle Ferran called El Ingenio http://www.el-ingenio.com/ a place for theatre goods, jugglings and traditional bigheads and giants founded in 1838 and run by the third generation of the family. After my last sketch of some Bighead masks I left home.
Image
Thanks everybody that came along, although I did miss some of my fellow SketchCrawlers...I'm always happy to meet new people and to see the group growing,
Looking forward to see everyone else's results!

Ooooh! Great results Cesar! I'm a little envious that I missed out on hanging out with you guys. However, I did manage to get one more Sketchcrawler to come out with me, and have head promises from other artists for 'Next Time' LOL. Keep up the good work! :clap:

Not much to add that wasn't already said -- looks like I missed out on the giant-head store (and the beer)! :)

I'm a big fan of anything related to natural history so the location and motifs here appeal to me very much.Yay for skeletons and bugs and kudos to all Barcelona sketchers.

¡Saludos, Barcelona!
Vaya nivelazo que marcáis... enhorabuena, los dibujos son magníficos. Y la idea de ir al Museu de Ciències Naturals, inmejorable. Felicitaciones de nuevo desde el incipiente grupo de Málaga.

eclecticbox, Bravo!!! I love both approaches: your original style and Enrique style.The light in the Shell's room is amazing; so lovely watercolor of the Cascade Fountain.

Swasky, Love your line drawings, especially those people's facial expressions.

lapin, All of your sketches are so elegant! So beautiful lines and subtle yet rich color.

jasonli , Really love your line drawings! Very impressive lines :thumbup:
