A quick visual summary of Day 1 of my workshop down in Melbourne run out of the wonderful Jenny Phllip's Botanical Art School Melbourne.
We spent the morning inside doing various exercises to explore concepts of how to start sketching, doing setups, working fast vs slow and how to work with lines and colour
and distinguishing edges. In the afternoon we braved the unpredictable Melbourne weather (very rather chilly today) and got some lovely blue skies as we sat out on the streets of South Yarra - looking at how to choose a focus and work out what to sketch. I did a number of demos today which was fun - I really wanted to share my process.
A great group of about 20 people - all keen to sketch more and some really great work was done today. Looking forward to more tomorrow!
