Meet the correspondents: LISBON > José Louro



"I draw, most of the times, for pleasure. That’s why I rarely draw buildings. When it comes to buildings, drawing becomes more like a punishment. My city happens outdoors and indoors. Like the traffic and the mall. Again, my city, especially an urban city like Lisbon, is about people’s everyday life. I just sit and try to catch the moments that happen in front of me. What interest me are the little things that, I think, no one really cares about. And, when my hand allow, I put these little things in a pedestal. But I know that someday I got to look up and try to draw those damned buildings. Perhaps now, with this invitation to Urban Sketchers, the god of drawing finally put his hand on my shoulder and guides me to do what the rest of the fellows here do so well."

Jose', I like your comments about drawing buildings !
Your work looks great - and I look forward to more sketches from Lisbon (a city I'd love to visit some day).

Very nice work ! Long time since I have been to Lisbon,but it´s a perfect place for urban sketches.
There are great buildings :). Buildings are very easy to draw, they don´t move (mostly).

Olá José,

Gostava de começar a pintar em aguarela.

Sabe se posso encontrar na Internet dicas (ou algum curso) de como iniciar?

Obrigado.
