Urban Sketching at UWA (Workshop 2) : Quick on the Draw: Speed-Sketching Techniques with Line and Colour Other events...
Quick on the Draw: Speed-Sketching Techniques with Line and Colour A full-day workshop with Lynne Chapman

The Workshop: ‘Capturing the moment’ is what urban sketching is all about, but one of the most tricky challenges with this, is the need to work quickly. There are many practical reasons why speed is useful: moving subjects (like people!), changing light, personal discomfort… Or a sketch might be an impromptu opportunity, when you only have a 10-minute window. I always try to work as fast as I can, as I find that my ‘quickies’ are generally my favourites and definitely the most fun to do. There are lots of techniques you can use to make speed-sketching more practical. Over the course of our day together, I will share many different ideas for creating quick impressions of what you see, using both linear tools and paint. I will show you how to avoid ‘over-thinking’ a sketch, by tapping into your instincts, to help your eyes and hand connect, without letting your brain interfere. We’ll look at how to gauge the best approach for specific subjects, as well as carrying the right art materials for jumping in and capturing what excites us, before it’s gone. We’ll also learn how these simple techniques can add life, impact and movement to our sketchbooks. I will be doing sketching demonstrations as we go along. It will be fast and furious, but hopefully lots of fun!
