On Friday morning oct.24 Alexandria’s Urban Sketchers and Description of Alexandria arranged a sketch walk Outing in front of Cecil Hotel with Guest of Honor Artist Sylvie Bargain. The sketchers distribute themselves around the buildings for sketching and drawing from their various perspectives. About three hours took to draw several paintings that described the beauty of Architectures.

“I realize my drawings on the deep, directly in the felt-tip then in the watercolor, because in life, there is no draft! “. Sylvie Bargain Said. Sylvie Bargain is a French Artist from Cahors. She is a member of the Urban Sketchers group and a correspondent of the blog USK France.
