Simultaneous translationPosted: July 13, 2013
One of the unique aspects of the Urban Sketchers Symposium (which ended tonight) was that every instructor had a Catalan translator. I was fortunate to be paired with the wonderful Cristina Curto who patiently translated even when I spoke in paragraphs instead of sentences. She led us through the streets of Barcelona to our painting destination and managed to get in some wonderful sketches of her own as well. It was a pleasure to have her by my side. So today’s post is a big thanks to Cristina as well as all the participants who made teaching in Barcelona an unforgettable experience. I only have a photo from the last group but they were all great. I also included today’s demo of the Santa Anna bell tower which was the only one that was postable.
