As you all know, I am totally addicted to sketching on location! In this 5-week sketching course, I want to share with you why and how I get such a creative buzz out of it. The aim is to inspire you to begin or continue, on your very own creative journey – with sketchbook in hand to explore the world around you.
I loved being in the Rocks area last November for my sketching architecture classes and want to go back to explore further the richness of this lively and varied area in Sydney – so much important history and culture is to be found there.
During the 5 weeks exploring The Rocks I will share my core concepts for spontaneous location sketching – whether sketching at home or while travelling.
– Learning to see better with your artist’s brain and how to start your sketch
– Exploring the interaction of line vs colour
– Simplifying a complex scene and creating a strong focus
– Achieving strong tones
– Applying a few compositional strategies
Each week we will start in a different location (either inside or outside) for a brief introduction and warmup exercise before heading out to the streets! The class will finish with a review and discussion of everyone’s work. The goal is to encourage everyone to develop their own personal style.
I will be explaining and demonstrating predominantly in ink and watercolour and showing why it is such a versatile medium for location sketching.
The course is suitable for all levels – although some basic drawing experience is recommended.
