MAD BRASS- Madrid Dixie Jam -Meeting

Street musicians

Live watercolor drawing. Dibujo en vivo en acuarela.

Last weekend was Saint Isidro. In Madrid this is a very special date and many events took place. You could enjoy lots of day and night concerts and there were three of them playing on the streets which I went to see to take some pictures and draw them too. This first group had a tap dancer with them while they played and all of them took the chance to make solos. First they sat down in front of the public playing all together and later on each one of them stood up and played their instruments one by one. They were very good and the public had such a great time! I made this sketch but missed some more musicians and the tap dancer. It´s lovely to draw in live but you never know how much time you will have to do it..! Well, here´s my sketch of the Madrid Dixie Jam Meeting.

El fin de semana pasado fue San Isidro Labrador. Para Madrid es una fecha muy importante, ya que es el patrón de la ciudad y hubo muchos eventos en su honor. Entre otras cosas se ofrecieron muchos conciertos tanto de día como de noche y en las calles hubo tres de ellos que no me perdí y además me llevé la cámara y material para dibujarlos. Este primer grupo llamado Madrid Dixie Jam- Meeting llevaban incluso  un bailador de claqué. Comenzaron sentándose frente al público y tocando al unísono. Luego, uno a uno, se fueron levantando y tocando cada cual un solo. Son muy buenos, y el público quedó encantado. Yo pude hacer este dibujo aunque me faltaron algunos músicos por representar y el bailador de claqué. Me encanta dibujar en vivo, pero nunca sabes del tiempo del que vas a a disponer para representarlos..!
