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.

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:

As promised. More images here http://www.4ojos.com/blog/?p=5153

(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.)

Impresionantes Joaquin y 4ojos!

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:Image

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.

Nice work Madrid, lively and fresh. Interesting to see the artists' interpretations where there is an accompanying photo of the subject.

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:

Como siempre, estaba impaciente por ver los resultados de Madrid, que siempre sorprenden y nunca decepcionan.
Qué lugar tan interesante para dibujar, la Tabacalera... Los dibujos impresionantes.

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!
