My Artist Pals in Cusco
While sketching in a quiet corner of the square, one of these art guys came over to watch. He showed me a small sketch from his portfolio and I offered him a brush and my paints. He skilfully added some wash in a true Urban Sketchers fashion. Soon his competitors had also gathered around and there was lots of good natured joking and some questions to me despite my inadequate Spanish.
It was another one of those circumstances that broke down the tourist barrier and seemed a natural opportunity for a sketchcrawl type photo of all of us with our work.
