Looking for pattern simply gives you another way to look differently at what’s around you. Yes it’s challenging and we don’t like to be out of our comfort zone, and we naturally want to make everything match what we see. But this time we’re saying Stop. Look at the colours, the light, the dark and the focus. Choose any colours you like. It’s yours and you can.
What a great group we had today. One dear student who has been with me over the years flew from New Zealand to do both this Workshop and Alissa’s on Saturday, the day before. Another flew from Sydney to do both. Another came from faraway and stayed 2 nights. It seems everyone worked hard to get to be with me here in the heart of Melbourne.
This was The Art of Living Autumn/Winter promotion for David Jones in Sydney and Melbourne. I would be the sketch tutor in Melbourne and Donna would be in Market St Sydney. Guests who would attend the 30 minute Sketch and Sip sessions were customers of David Jones Department Stores.
What amazing results….
Our Sketch Tour to Cuba is coming up fast. April 15th to April 25th in fact.
I’m very keen for those of you already booked to be encouraged and inspired before you come, and have an enormous amount to look forward to. The marvellous James Richards has sent me some of his Cuba images and links for you to study and learn a little from. Like us he uses pure colour, plenty of whites and plenty of darks.
Take a look at the link below and immerse yourself in his journeys and thoughts about Cuba.
I think of life sketching as a landscape. When you start to see those hills of Tuscany or French Alps as undulating lines you’ll begin to feel the form that you’re seeing on the model. That will show in your landscape sketches.
What a great group we had today. Three were receivers of gifts from family and friends and delighted to add sketching to their lives. All from a wide and varied background, some with art experience and some without.
Not that any of that matters today. This is not about having talent as people believe. Its about learning to see. That’s what we teach you. The building blocks of observation. The foundation of all drawing.
Join Anne Scott in her upcoming workshops at Erin hill Studio and have some fun. See how much you can paste on your page, sketch over it and add paint. This is Travel Sketching with collage. All your memories in a wonderful mixture of texture and colour.
This was the first in our new series of ‘Getting Loose with Watercolour’ Workshops. Some students were experienced and others newer to Travel/Urban sketching, but all there to find out why they felt watercolour paint was a challenge.
I've been keen to do another Melbourne Sketch Workshop for sometime, as those I've done previously have been very warmly received, and Alissa has given me a wonderful chance to do so.
Join me if you're keen to simplify your sketches and see the easy shapes we look for. We will be around inner Melbourne and sketch as though we are travelling, making quick notes and discoveries as we go.
I’m delighted to say I’ve have now planned the first 2019 Sketch Adelaide Workshop.
I’ve been keen and thanks to Lyn and several others for expressing your interest and making it happen.
If you’ve been keen to become a sketcher or would like to take your current skills further then I’m here to help.
