Three views from the incredibly beautiful Tivoli Palacio de Setsais Hotel on Sintra. We stayed for just the one night but it was probably the most gorgeous place I've ever stayed in, or am ever likely to stay in!
A few photos below of the hotel itself:

Saturday morning and I met up with Mario Linhares and a group of local urban sketchers to show some of my sketchbook and give a quick demonstration of my technique. It was a little daunting but I was made to feel very welcome by the group. I also took with me some small booklet to hand out with details of how I draw buildings.
If you would like a copy, there is a downloadable PDF which prints onto an A3 sheet and then folds down to a small booklet. Click on the link below:

After drawing the Arco Rua Augusta, I moved along the pedestrianised street to the Santa Justa Lift, which is tucked away in a nearby street. Built by Raul Mesnier, a student of Eiffel, its a very elegant structure which serves a very practical purpose of getting up and down the steep hills of Lisbon.
Paula, our guide for the trip, took this photo of me drawing.

On the second morning, Paula and Antonio took me up to Senhora do Monte where there was a great view across the city.
We then moved down to 'Rossio', the main square and I managed to draw part of a former palace before the rain started falling.
