1010 / Classic Renault 4 at Pomarão / Portugal

r4_pomarao_rpsAt my last visit to Portugal,I was invited to a “drawing workshop”, organized by my friend Rui Cunha.
On the last afternoon of the course, after a couple of days of drawing buildings and landscape, I gazed this (irresistible) lovely orange Renault 4.
A few minutes after starting the sketch, I was surprised by the owner, that receptive to the drawing (later I realized he was also an architect)  gently waited, so I could carry on; and even offered me a beer and a good chat! For this moments, it is worth drawing! Thanks João!

Na minha última visita a Portugal, fui convidado para um “workshop de desenho”, organizado pelo meu amigo Rui Cunha.
Na última tarde da workshop, após alguns dias desenhando edifícios e paisagens, reparei neste fantástico (irresistível) Renault 4 cor-de-laranja!
Pouco depois de começar o desenho, fui surpreeendido com a chegada do proprietário, que sensibilizado com o desenho (mais tarde vim a saber que também era arquitecto), gentilmente esperou para que eu pudesse continuar; ainda me ofereceu uma cerveja e um boa conversa! É por estes momentos que vale a pena desenhar! Obrigado João!

    • Thanks! I must improve my English writing so I can write more stories…

      • If my Spanish was as good as your English, Hugo I would be extremely happy.

      • Thanks, that is a Kind of compliment! In fact, I’ve never studied spanish, though I wrote my PhD in that language: funny, isn’t it? Do you live in Spain?

      • No Hugo, I live in Wales, Britain with plans to move to southern Spain in the next few years. In the meantime I’m learning the language and go there as often as possible.
