About travel sketching 

These are not your traditional drawing, illustration or painting classes. This is sketching –  a simple impression, as you see it in the moment, no matter how wibbly wobbly! We focus on easy to learn techniques, fast impressions and finding your personal style. It’s about letting go and enjoying the image you capture.

Whats we did in week 7 2018

Albert Park  
Well it’s an exciting class as it’s putting into practice in our sketches everything we’ve been learning so far this Term.
We are really focusing on Intrinsic shapes, planning our page and quick sketches on location that tell a story.
Our warm up sketch is shoes & gloves or bags lots of choice for colour and honing our skills on those different shapes.
Out and about in Albert Park capturing the essence of the area to tell a story of what’s happening in the area when we are sketching.
We have a travelling Sketcher join us for the next two weeks Marie from North America who loves sketching and is now exploring parts of Melbourne she’s not seen before.



A lot to focus on for our sketching tonight as we hone our skills on observation and really sketch what we see.

Intrinsic shapes and quick sketches adding colour in any medium is our theme .
Out and about in Elsternwick – planning our sketches to really tell a story and capture the night life of the area and the interesting cafe – The Goat House .
Warm regards,
Jeanette X
