|Pete Scully's Masterful rendering of a complicated interior space|
This coming Saturday, August 10th I am teaching “All the World's a Stage: Finding your Perfect Story” where I will be showing students how to draw human figure and how to approach a large public setting as a theatre stage where people act as if actors in a play, how to find those stories and convey them using drawings.
Then on September 8 Andrea Matthews takes sketchers to the popular PSU Farmer’s Market to explore how textures, lines and color could be used to approach such a vibrant setting full of colorful produce, flowers, foliage, and people busy shopping.
On September 29th I am back teaching “Humbled but not Overwhelmed: Keeping your Sketcher’s Cool in Large Complicated Spaces” which will give students the tools to break down and simplify large complicated spaces in order to capture soaring cathedrals, train stations, stately museums while visiting foreign lands or sketching in their home town.
On October 13th during the “Drama Queen or a Great Manipulator: Making Sketches that Intrigue and Grab Attention” I will reveal a number of magic techniques and sketching secrets that are sure to lead to sketches that turn heads and force second takes. This workshop will take place in the gorgeous Lan Su Chinese Garden.
Then, the drumbeat please…. because for the closing workshop of the season we are bringing the amazing Pete Scully to Portland to teach “All Together Now and with Perspective: Fitting all Bits and Pieces into a Grid” (November 10). If you are not familiar Pete is a highly revered urban sketcher, teacher and author who is a master at capturing complicated interiors with fantastic detail and precision. Pete Scully has authored several books on sketching and if you haven’t seen his work his blog is one place to start: https://petescully.com/
