Sketch Adelaide Workshop

Glenelg, Adelaide

Glenelg, Adelaide

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.

What: 2 day Travel Sketch Workshop

Where: Boomers Café - 1 Moseley Square, Glenelg Adelaide

When: Monday February 18th and Tuesday February 19th

Time: 10.00AM - 3.00PM

Who: Everybody welcome

Day 1.
Simplifying Travel Sketching
Our first day will be about planning your page and getting onto your page what you see in from of you. We will look at the main shapes in our subject to get our first sketch done, and several tricks to get you more free. Once we apply aquarelle colour you'll see how leaving whites and pushing darks creates dimension. We continue on location and complete our sketches over lunch. We’ll carry many of these tips over to day 2.

Day 2. Getting Loose with Watercolour
Today we’ll work the 10 watercolours we’ll need to bring our sketches to life.
Once we have our first sketch, we’ll start with where to put colour, how much water to add, and how to let the colours come together on the page.
We’ll do a location sketch and apply watercolour at lunch, along with a food sketch.
You’ll love the results.

What to bring:
Day 1
. A5 Sketchbook, 125gsm smooth paper.
Black No 3 permanent drawing pen.
Set of 12 Staedtler Noris Club Aquarelle pencils

Day 2. Same sketchbook as day 1 , or heavier if you wish. Smooth not textured.
