My Stand I spent a fantastic time in Clermont Ferrand meeting old and new friends. I am so looking forward for the next Urban Sketching Symposium in Barcelona to meet them all again. I went to Clermont-Ferrand, for the pure curiosity of knowing what it is about. Their website was a little confusing even if […]
