Sketchwalk 2 – destination Leoes- introduced me to my first Monumental Uphill Climb. We crossed the street in front of Alfândega and entered the jumble of buildings I’d come to love to sketch. The artistic layout = almost vertical cobblestone streets. Huff Puff Pant Gasp. Yikes. I made it! I examined the fountain, picked out a lion to sketch, set up my chair and relaxed.

I wandered around a bit and found a couple of outdoor restaurants.

Stillman and Birn Beta Series sketchbook; Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen (hard tip), Pitt brush pen; if there is color it will be from Molotow and/or Posca acrylic paint markers.
