This is Jorge. He is an urban sketching friend and he lives near Buenos Aires, Argentina. My wife and I visited him a couple of years ago while we we were touring Argentina and Chile. We had a nice afternoon of sketching together and then went back to his house and hung out with his lovely family and friends and had a traditional Argentinean barbecue.

5"x7". I sketched this in my Grand Portrait Handbook journal and added color to it in Artrage. I attempted it using the cross hatching technique that Jorge is famous for.

Should I go to Argentina? I have friends developing a winery there... Actually, they live in Switzerland and split their time between. Switzerland would be nice & I currently have an invitation.

Should we go to Chile? We have local friends from there...

No passport!

But you make it sound so nice.

We had a great time in both Chile and Argentina. Helps to have friends there to show you around and drink wine with! You only live once - so I say do it!

Did you know that Jorge passed away just a month after you posted this sketch?

Hi Amanda,

Yes, it was shocking. He gave so much of himself. I miss him.
