Nunca encontrei ninguém completamente incapaz de aprender a desenhar.

10 x 10 Porto

I’ve been fortunate to catch two of the 10 x 10 sessions in Portugal—with Pedro Loureiro in Lisboa (Mercado de Campo de Ourique) and with Tiago Cruz on 15 July in the Praça do Leões (which I discovered is called Praça de Gomes Teixeira on all the maps!).

Tiago’s theme was ‘composition’ and our first exercise was to use an object in the foreground (light pole, power box, parked car) to firstly give a reference point for an object in the background, and secondly to give an indication of relative depth to our sketch. Fifteen 2-minute sketches was our aim (I got to about 8 or 10 in the allotted time).

I’ve been fortunate to sketch alongside many of my favourite sketchers in Portugal on this visit, including Filipa Antunes, Mário Linhares, Pedro Alves, Pedro Loureiro, and Tiago Cruz. After the 10 x 10 session I asked Tiago if he would sign my copy of Liz Steel’s great new book Five-Minute Sketching: Architecture (to which he contributed some guest sketches). I felt like a middle-aged groupie asking Sting to sign a concert programme.
