*Sketching in the Rocks with Liz Steel
In this workshop we will be looking at how to sketch quickly on location with ink and wash. The Rocks area is a perfect part of Sydney to learn these skills as it’s full of interesting street scenes with lots of different layers of history.
The secret to quick sketching is not trying to draw and paint at a furious pace. Instead it’s being intentional about what we sketch and simplifying the scene in front of us. Saying more with less.
So in this workshop we will be looking at how to determine the important edges and the big shapes when we look at a scene. And then how to create a focus and tell an interesting personal story about what we like most about the scene. When should we sketch a big scene, and why should we zoom in and just focus on a detail. And along the way we will learn lots of tips for making our lines stronger and our watercolour more lively.
This workshop has been designed for people with some sketching experience (ie. not absolute beginners).
