City sketching workshops

Posted on Apr 6, 2019

It is great to be back out in the sunshine running sketching workshops.

As the weather starts to improve and the days grow longer I have a number of scheduled drawing days where you can come and pick up some sketching tips while producing a number of drawings capturing the location we are touring.

Last week I was in the New Town and next weekend I have dates in both the Old Town and Causewayside.

I will take you on a walking tour of the area picking out some distinctive local features to capture in pen and watercolour. Moving from quick 5 minute sketches to more detailed longer compositions we will draw both details and long perspectives.

I finish each session with a drink and perhaps a snack too in a location where we can sit around a table, add final touches to our works, mount a favourite piece and discuss how we got on.

It makes for a lovely afternoon or morning of creativity with a friendly bunch of like minded people, where you can relax and free your mind whilst at the same time improving your ability to capture the world around you in a sketch book.

I keep my classes small so I can work with each person, whether they be a complete beginner or regular sketcher.

You can see a full list of my upcoming workshops on my dedicated page HERE but for more information on next weekends classes then see the links below.
