Blue Mountains Travel Sketch Class

The students whom have already completed the Introduction course and have returned term after term had an extra lesson today. It was a wet dark day in The Mountains, so we stayed in the studio and explored styles and mediums with the over arching theme of "animals". Looking at the many different sketchers and illustrators in already published books (many of them childrens books) as well and testing out new materials such as a giant set of coloured pencils took them to new places. Do you really want to be a studio artist? How much time to spend on a travel sketch? What level of detail is needed so I am happy with my sketch? The free and simple sketches have movement and joy, how to make sure I can achieve that? We drank tea and shared homemade cookies and fresh fruit. A lovely way to end Term 1.
