35 hours in Rio de Janeiro

My stay in Rio during my recent trip to Brazil for the Urban Sketching Symposium was very short, just about 35 hours, but quite memorable nonetheless. Here are some moments I recorded in my sketchbook.

Exuberant locals strutting down the endless sidewalk along Ipanema beach.

It was elbow-to-elbow at the mountaintop with the iconic statue of Jesus.

How many cities can boast a viewpoint like this one from the Sugarloaf? I was in awe.


  1. superb. I love your sugarloaf sketch: you captured it all in one sketch.
