This time we decided to sketch around ¨El Parq de la Ciutadela¨, it's the second park in size in the city and hosts the Zoo, the Zoology and the Geologic Museums of Barcelona amongst other interesting spots.
Some of us (JasonLi, Victor ¨Swasky¨, Jiveatfive & 3a) met at 11am next to the Zoology Museum entrance and went into it to start sketching.
Here are the first drawings, that I inked and coloured with markers later on at home.
Some Stag Beetles
The Shell's Room with Jiveatfive sketching along
The sun came out and we decided to went outside for the next sketches.
Inspired by the always wonderful water colours of Enrique Flores ¨4ojos¨ from Madrid, I pushed myself to work straight on with that media (and with no previous pencil) and see what I could come up with, that one is my view of the band stand and obviously I'm miles away from Enrique
My take on the Cascade Fountain (which is a French-style fountain designed jointly by Fontsere and Gaudi and recently restored)
To take a break of the water colours I also did a pencil detail of the fountain
To that point, Jiveatfive and 3a had to leave but Carmen, Aurelie and Lapin joined us. Already lunchtime we went to ¨La Rambla del Born¨ to get a snack and go back to the park with renewed energies.
That's another water colour of one of the islands in the middle of the small lake
And Lapin sketching some animal skeletons
We finally left the Museum and went for a drink, after that Lapin took me to an incredible shop right next to calle Ferran called El Ingenio a place for theatre goods, jugglings and traditional bigheads and giants founded in 1838 and run by the third generation of the family. After my last sketch of some Bighead masks I left home.
