New Sketchers, and we’re proud to say the biggest intake of new students we’ve had, all survived their first nervous footsteps into the Studio, quite uncertain that this may be be the biggest mistake ever. Until we begin those first vital steps. Ahh so I can relax now, they say to themselves. And everyone does.
By the end of their very first class each one has produced several pages of very recognizable sketches. They look in wonderment and say ‘I can’t believe I did that’ Their world has just changed. It’s all going to be ok.
For our General Sketchers we plan the term so that each week you are learning something new in your sketching, and enjoying the different mediums and ideas we can help bring to your work. This week it was about texture and tone. If you find yourself with just a pen and sketchbook – this is your answer. Lines, hatching, dashes, dots. All put down in a way to give tone and texture to your sketch.
Lots of practice in the Studio, seeing the demonstrations done then doing it yourself, means you’re able to go on location, find your subject, see where the tones go, and create a very different type of sketch. Bright clear colour is applied always in layers, but only in selected areas. All the sketches look so dramatic and interesting. Enjoy.
