Week 8 and everybody is a pretty capable Travel Sketcher by now.
New Sketchers – we were testing our long term observation skills. Something you’ve looked at all your life. Prolly even owned one. Yep. The bicycle. Now sketch one from memory. Gulp. Two wheels. Something across the top. Handle bars. A seat. Umm. Can’t think. Now bring out the model bike and sketch that. The missing links suddenly make sense. Oh yes. Look at all the bits that hold it together. Keep this somewhere in your book for future reference. Eventually you’ll know it off by heart.
General Classes – we’re on a Cross hatching theme. ( Someone noted on the board – Hot Cross hatching!) Texture with lines and tiny patterns only. What happens if you have only your book and pen with you. This is what you do. Sketch with black cross hatching. It’s extremely effective. Add one colour if you have it. Can even be the coffee from your cup. Most classes treated themselves to Easter treats of delicious mugs of hot chocolate or some Easter egg tastings. Why not. We deserve it.
