Rain and movement

Vegetarian food is not particularly my favorite (especially in the capital of the steak). But I know that in a corner (very interesting, on the second floor, in a restaurant), there is a spectacular view that shows the daily movement who live in Buenos Aires. I had no choice and had to go up and eat some of the menu.
Well, Diagonal Norte and Florida Street are two emblematic corners in downtown. And its one of my favorite´s,
I came back to draw many times.

That same vegetarian food restaurant was a coffee-bar. I found this sketch of 2010 from the same floor and a little different point of view.

Furthermore, we are excited by the invitation of the country's largest newspaper, The Nation, to publish our work of five sketchers of Buenos Aires!
This sketch was published last Saturday in the Society section of the weekend supplement.
Rainy day, but full of movement.

Ink and watercolor on moleskine. Approximately 3 hours.

Two others have already used the word fabulous, which is the word I was going to use...;)

Miguel Herranz said...

Tremendo trabajo, enhorabuena Norberto!

Yani said...

Grandioso!!! Se ha convertido, hasta ahora, en mi favorito entre los últimos que has hecho. Parece que tiene vida el dibujo, qué manera de captar la atmósfera y el espíritu del día y el lugar! Me encanta.

Picnic? I love that place :P

Murray Dewhurst said...

Your sketch in the newspaper captures the character and atmosphere so much more than a photograph.

Hopefully more newspapers might be inspired to feature sketch reportage like Lanacion and the Davis Enterprise.
