Near the Easter processions…

Back in Cordoba with people waiting for Easter processions to start, watching them from a balcony, and some band members recovering after hours of playing in the heat! I think drawing groups of figures is my default for ‘urban sketching’; I love picking out the key lines and gestures that describe an individual, and that capture their relationship with others nearby.

    You really capture those “key lines” so well. . . and so simply. Bravo!

    You really do these crowds justice! Great job capturing the mood and all those poses, I feel sweats coming on just thinking about tackling that.
