Sketches From Boehms Candy Factory

Sunday Urban sketchers met at Boehms Chocolate Factory to sketch and tour the facilities.  The facilities included the store, Mr. Boehms Chalet, a replica of a 12th century Alpine hut, and the chocolate factory.  There was a lot of art and stuff around the site.  But I tried to find a view I liked and found these two more simple views.

First Sketch Crawl with the Urban Sketchers in Barcelona

Wednesday July 10 was a pre-symposium sketch crawl for all those who had arrived in Barcelona.  We missed  the early morning sketch crawl but met up with the sketchers at noon for the sketch-crawl at Sagrada Familia.  Sagrada Familia is the unfinished Gaudi Cathedral. It has been under construction since 1882, Gaudi became involved in the design in 1883 and worked on it until he died.  The projected finished date is 2026 which will be the anniversary of Gaudi's death in 1926.

Mercat Santa Caterina, Barcelona Spain

The second day of sketches in Barcelona ended with this sketch of Mercat Santa Caterina. Renovated in 2005, it has a colorful and eye catching undulating roof of ceramic tiles. It was designed by Architects Mirales and Tagliabue of EMBT.
