This year´s 43rd SketchCrawl coincides with the Holy Week celebrations in our city. Valladolid has been declared as an international tourism interest. They combine with deep courtly and cultural roots, influences the Semana Santa that dates back to the 15th century. We will try to sketch some of the striking traditions in our city although there aren´t many processions during Holy Saturday. Our first meeting point is in front of the Cathedral at 11:30 in the morning. Later, depending on the weather and the attendees, we might draw inside the Cathedral or different exhibit areas (there is an on-going exhibit "Reproducciones de la Pasión" at Sala del Teatro Calderon ). In the evening, we could sketch the different processions in the streets.

El 43º SketchCrawl coincide este año con la celebración de la Semana Santa en nuestra ciudad. Será una oportunidad para mostrar al mundo el ambiente de nuestra impactante semana santa. Quedamos a las 11h30 frente a la catedral para luego decidimos donde dibujar (dentro de la catedral o en la Sala del Teatro Calderón, donde hay una exposición interesante sobre el trabajo de los artesanos que realizaron los pasos, "Reproducciones de la Pasión").
Quedamos de nuevo 13h30 por si alguno se retrasa en el Cafetín (El Largo Adiós). Por la tarde, si seguimos con ganas, podemos dibujar las procesiones en la calle.

Traditions during Holy Week in Valladolid are very impressive and inspiring to go out and draw in the streets.

The 43rd SketchCrawl was a success with almost twenty participants. We enjoyed a good weather and we sketched near the Cathedral as well as inside the Las Angustias Church. Later, to finish the morning session, we had a drink in a bar. In the afternoon, we met again in front of the Vera Cruz Church.

These are the sketches that I was able to do during the 43rd World Wide SketchCrawl in Valladolid which coincided with the celebration of the Holy Saturday. Once again, it was an enjoyable day for me to be able to sketch in the street and participate to this worldwide event.
