Sketching Architecture Workshop in Melbourne

August 20, 2013 | 2 Comments

I am very excited to announce that I will be running a full day workshop in Melbourne on sketching architecture – Saturday 14 September.

Update 02 Sept: This workshop is now fully booked but please contact me if you would like to go on the waiting list.

You don’t need perfect perspective to draw buildings but you do need to understand what you are looking at. This full day workshop will help you grasp the fundamentals of drawing architecture and have fun doing it!

We look at the following:
– differentiating and prioritising between  3D forms and volumes, structure, details and texture
– describing edges, thickness and corners
– applying simple strategies for using persective on location
– placing buildings in context – describing the space and life in front of them.

Working with ink and watercolour wash, we will also explore ways to sketch architecture with lively lines and loose and colourful watercolour washes. A series of exercises has been developed to help all levels of participants progress from simple buildings to more elaborate architecture.

Location:
Melbourne University (more details will be emailed to participants separately)

Format:
9.30-12.30     Meet. Brief introduction, demonstrations and exercises on location
12.30-1.30        Lunch at nearby cafe
1.30- 4.30        Afternoon session. Simple perspective and contextual studies.
