Sketching Week 7 Term 4. Colours in Nature

This week was about nature. Natural colours and textures. Studio warm ups are all about observing whatever has been set up and planning your page. Make sure you get everything in. That is your mission. Add some colour. Oh yes, whites tops and sides. Darks down the centre. Always.

Out on location however you can choose what to put in or leave out.

New sketchers did nature’s bounty observing intrinsic shapes and texture, and leaving white tops and sides for that immediate dimensional effect.

Beautifully as you’ll see.

Nature has been tough on us this week. Australia looks to be on fire. If we’re not directly affected count yourself lucky, but we have had very high temperatures all week.

So for some of our classes it’s been challenging.

But we are very proud of you all. You sketched on regardless.

Sketching old steps framed by jacarandas was our subject. Your tutors are loving seeing how you each decide what you’ll put down and how much faster you’ve become. Colour as you know goes on if you get time. A splash will do it.

Take a look and enjoy.
