I was at the Morgan Library with the NYC Urban Sketchers yesterday. It has gotten too cold to sketch outdoors so we went inside and were wowed by the masterful charcoal portraits drawn by John Singer Sargent. Since I dislike sketching with a pencil on paper I decided to copy his artwork using iPat. I enjoy the 6B pencil tool in procreate and once I found a spot where I wasn’t blocking anyone’s view I dove in.

I took out iPat and gave her a chance.

A couple of weeks ago there was a bevy of electricians working outside and inside. A whole day long thing. When they shut off all the power for the day, the inside guy hooked me up with some to keep me happy. He was working in the room with the recliner so I had a lamp, a floor fan and a line going to the refrigerator. I got a lot of paperwork done that day and discarded old stuff. I had a list and crossed off many of the items. I noticed that the guy(s) inside didn’t move around much as he(they) continuously worked so I took advantage.

The USK Symposium ended last evening and I am on my own for two days. Reiberia was my second stop for the day and I ended up staying somewhere in this area until evening. Running into Sketchers and sketching until there was no more sketch left. I turned around, my other drawing of diners was complete, and I now faced the Douro River. There was a line of people sitting on the quay before me watching the boats speed and/or sail by. We were in the large shade provided by the only tree. It doesn’t matter where the sun is, there is always a big pool of shade. There were two benches available that allowed people to face in different directions. The breeze was constant and a bit chilly. Earlier there had been a busker attached to a life-sized dummy, taking up too much of the shade, dancing very entertaining tangos. It was nice when he left. Still crowded but quieter with a really cool view.

Picture 800 Sketchers stretched along the wide meridian between the Avenue leading up to the impressive edifice of Porto’s City Hall fronted by an imposing statue and regal stairway. The Sketchers were on the ground, on tiny stools or bolted down chairs, standing, chatting, perusing – all of them holding an open sketchbook, a pen, brush or juggling a palette. Picture all the tourists taking pictures of the sketchers. Coolest thing.

On Thursday, late afternoon, everyone attended their chosen demo – remember – 800 sketchers. Since each demo had a limit of 25 there were a lot of groups looking for a quiet spot. I chose Maru Goda’s since she was demonstrating her way of using gouache. I was wowed by her before but after watching her create a painting of the jumble of buildings across the street with such ease and joy I’m even more in awe.
