Week 2. Term 1 – Shape, tone, texture

Intro classes were discovering round shapes and our particular way of showing dimension – white top and sides, dark down the centre. Lemons and limes give a great chance to show how darks behind whites give you that depth in the fastest way.

Travel Sketching classes were looking at techniques for brick, render and sandstone. We picked the 3 colours we’d use a base here and tried both watercolour and aquarelle to try different effects. Then either vignettes or entrances to one of our many churches and chapels here in Manly Australia. Sandstone is what most of the rock here is, very ochre in it’s colour and very attractive to sketch.
