Everyone seems to need to get the pen, paper and head working to start a session.
Like any class, it takes a moment to leave all the hurley-burley of the morning behind and settle into that first sketch – and relax. We started with a bit of discussion about observing the subject, breaking it down into shapes, and visually measuring height, width etc.
So while the others sketch I like to do a very fast one of the setup. I then have something to show at lunch to put colour onto. Everyone produced very pleasing sketches from our wander along the streets to the seaside.
We added a bit of colour after I’d shown some techniques, had our lunch and felt quite satisfied with our results.
Next week – rooftops and chimneys.
