The Urban Sketchers travels in Portugal would not be complete without a trip to Lisbon. This time around they are represented by Lis Watkins from Britain and by the host José Louro.

They visited the city’s most important sites such as the historic neighbourhoods of Baixa, Bairro Alto and Belém, and Parque das Nações, an area of the city which was recently rebuilt. In an experience which is definitely different from the usual urban scenery, they took up the challenge of drawing during the NOS Alive music festival, in Algés, one of the most important music festivals in Portugal.

Near Lisbon, the Sintra Natural Park (Parque Natural de Sintra), the Estoril coast, Cascais and the Arrábida Natural Park (Parque Natural da Arrábida) were the inspiration to draw and admire the diversity of the Portuguese landscape.
