Sketching Wk 3 Term 2. Manly People

We began our warmup sketches in the Studio with our regular this week using a bamboo pen and coloured ink. We had the yoga mat, boogie board, takeaway coffee cup, mobile phone, baseball and sun hats. All the sorts of things Manly people would be doing as they hurry about their daily business. For new sketchers, we stuck with the black pen. and w’colour pencils. The others added loose watercolour to top off the quick impressions and everybody was delighted with the characters popping off the pages.  We just want the movement of people and we certainly did.

On location we sensibly reverted to our black pens with a dash of watercolour or w’c pencil and sketched everything and everybody that passed us during our sketch time. At InSitu Cafe this week some of the staff became our models. Thanks Mandeep and Bahman. The students were delighted.

Some of the newer sketches told me how nervous they’d been when they discovered this week’s subject, but were thrilled to find that people are just shapes too.
