The climb up to Virtudes, Sketchwalk 5, was a killer. Well, it almost killed me until I received an offer to carry the tote bag that contained my stool and markers. It was worth the effort. A beautiful view of Porto in one direction, turn around and there was a bustling indoor/outdoor cafe and funky street art. At one point when I was pretty much finished with this spread a man came out. He said he was occupying the building, that his grandfather had been born inside and “they” want to take it and do whatever to it. I showed him my journal and that I had attributed the original artists – Costah and dasior_tattoo – which turned out to be him.

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.
