So many elements go into making a good painting and in this workshop we will cover as many as time permits, including composition, value sketches, black and white studies and blocking in with full colour. We will pay particular attention to making a good beginning. The initial block in can have an enormous effect on the progress of that painting; it can flow relatively smoothly or be a struggle all the way through. Deborah will demonstrate several ways to tackle that initial block in, and demonstrate her approach to any problems that arise, offering plenty of help one-on-one.
Come join us for a fun and informative session to learn all about this worldwide movement of sketching on-location in our urban environments. Calgary Urban Sketchers is an authorized chapter of urbansketchers.org, the international organization of tens of thousands of urban sketchers across the globe. They are an all-volunteer non-profit group dedicated to fostering a global community of artists who practice on-location drawing.
Urban Sketchers support each other and draw together; sharing their world one sketch at a time. For more information about Calgary Urban Sketchers, please visit calgaryurbansketchers.com.
