Workshop 2: Perspective, Proportion and Value for the Urban Sketcher

Instructor:  Andrew Banks

Description:

In academia, perspective, proportion and value are often accompanied by many daunting rules that can discourage an urban sketcher from drawing architecture and architectural landscapes. This workshop simplifies these techniques into easy-to-master, practical methods for building a sketch from the ground up. These skills can be used for quick sketches as well as lengthier, more involved sketches.

Learning Goals:

  • Basic overview of perspective and different types of perspective
  • Use the “sighting” technique to create a drawing in perspective
  • Use the “sighting” technique to gauge sizes, proportions and their relative relationships to one another
  • Identify visual cues in landscapes, architecture, and architectural details to aid in           laying out a sketch
  • Learn what to include in the pencil layout of a sketch
  • Create a dynamic sketch by adding value to the drawing using ink
  • Hatching, mark making and texture techniques
  • Recommendations of pens and inks
  • What papers work best for pen and ink work

Supplies list:

  • Pencil and eraser
  • Black pen
  • Sketchbook/paper/pad
