Instructor: Lisa Flahive
This workshop will focus on creating energetic sketches of lively urban spaces without an eraser. The instructor will start by using a range of large gray markers. Participants will develop confidence by trying some short sketching exercises. They will incorporate speed and take some risks in the sketching process.
Participants will learn to confidently capture the energy of the city by using:
- dynamic composition with a focal point
- line and shape
- strong sense of value
- connected shapes to unify the sketch
- one or more technical pens
- markers – black and two or more gray values (the instructor will demonstrate both wide and big brush markers, but participants may bring any sketching material that allows them to create a range of values)
- portable stool
