Hey, this is good news – I just heard I’ll be going to the 4th international Urban Sketchers Symposium in Barcelona! I’ve cooked up a little workshop entitled: Drawing people in action – A character sketching crash course.
It’s a set of step by step exercises for sketching people – how to quickly capture their gestures and personality. I’m planning it to be a fun workshop, designed to be both informative and liberating. Lets get over our natural discomfort drawing people who won’t stand still for us. I’m sure I’ll be posting some worksheets and tutorials as we get closer to July. I like to give out the coursework for people who can’t make it in person.
Coincidentally , Montreal Urban Sketcher Shari Blaukopf has also been selected – so that’s kind of fun. You can meet both of the Montreal correspondents at the same time! I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of new of sketchers, and taking in as much of this incredibly sketchable city.
