His workshops endeavor to map the area around Amoreiras public park. In the february workshop, he challenged us to sketch the same subject three times in a row, using different levels of detail.Eduardo Salavisa, Jardim das Amoreiras, Casa Museu Vieira da Silva, workshop, sketching

The first sketch had to be done in 2 to 3 minutes. The second one in 10 minutes. And the last one in half an hour. Most of the color was added indoors, afterwards.Eduardo Salavisa, Jardim das Amoreiras, Casa Museu Vieira da Silva, workshop, sketching

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!
