Freedom Revolution Workshop, the workshop I was invited to give, was planed to the last day of my stay. Our meeting point was at the charming Largo do Carmo - small beautiful square, which I had a chance to sketch a day before. The weather wasn't perfect - cloudy and rainy. But of course it couldn't stop our group of enthusiastic sketchers to gather and to enjoy the day.
I did some fast portraits, just to feel the exercise ;)
Here are some great results of capturing emotions, although we tried to focus on the process:
Here are some great sketches of people in action:
sketching again ;)), and arrived to the our final sketching point - Praça do Comércio, well-burned in my memory since the final Sketchcrawl of the Lisbon USk Symposium took place there. Now, when we were warmed up, and had practiced sketching people in action and describing their emotions through their expressions and body language, we were ready to put them in their surroundings. So, in the final exercise sketchers asked to put their "heroes" into the scene. Everybody spread out looking for the interesting stories.

It was a wonderful sketch-trip, Lisbon will be always in my heart (and in my sketchbook ;)).
Now, when the Lisbon trip is over, I'm looking forward to the Singapore USk Symposium, where I'll be teaching together with my friend and fellow sketcher Ea Ejersbo this workshop in a bit different format. See you there!!!
