Thanks for the link. I thought the music was beautiful. I didn't understand your comments about how calling the Garden Dias y Flores was controversial at the time. Since I couldn't understand the words I was struck instead by the flags waving and thousands of people singing with Silvio Rodriguez. Then I hit google and researched the song, the album and the man himself and came away with a fuller understanding of the context. It added a whole political and social dimension to a really nice day sketching.
Silvio is quite an artist and was, for many years, a principle spokesman (through his music) for communist Cuba.
Richard, I see a change in your work as well. Could this be the influence from the Symposium? Your linework looks the same , but the watercolor without linework is something I don't think I've seen you do before. You guys did some really nice work yesterday!
Thanks Susan. Putting to practice some of the BCN workshops.
The music was lovely. I could not find the lyrics in English however.Richard I heard great things about your Barcelona workshop from the PortlandUSK attendees! They said it was the best one they went to. I hope to participateIn the future.Great sketches of the garden!
The music is great and the lyrics talk about rage against the worlds evils.I'm glad that the folks from Portland had a good time. It was a great experience.
Your line sketch like always is great, and I like the direct in watercolor sketch too!!! Looks like a fun time...I'm enjoying the music while I comment.
