End of day one


Day one of the Rendez vous ended outside a bar next to the cathedral (everything else was closing), where Miguel Herranz, I, Lapin and Gérard Michel talked about sketchbooks, drawing techniques, colours, and drawing habits, with a group of young students from Colégio de Santa Doroteia in Lisbon. They are in Clermont-Ferrand with their teacher Mario Linhares (whom I met during the Lisbon symposium this summer) and his colleagues.

I was really impressed by these students – I took this photo at 00.25, and they were freezing at the end, but still asking questions, being genuinelly interested… Wow.


I managed to squeeze in a few portraits too, during the evening. I am determined that some day I will be able to draw perfect portraits, and fast, so I’d better start practicing. These took forever.

  1. They’re wonderful–esp. the one of Miguel–nice clean simple lines to capture the likeness.

  2. I wish you a pleasant, safe and inspired journey. Do you ever come to the USA or are there other venues/wokshops in your near future anywhere that a huge fan such as I can meet/learn from you?

    Love your work,

  3. its seems to be a nice experience!!!
