Tour de France - Workshop Recording

We have very intense work ahead of us. We are going on a Tour de France and will make three sketches in three different styles. Depending on the subject, we will determine the style and technique. The most important task of the workshop is to try different possibilities and find out which technique is best for which case.

White Pencil - Workshop Recording

The ability to work with light is just as important as the ability to work with shadow. Light is an equally effective tool, especially if tinted paper is used. At the workshop, together, we will:

  • Learn the basic principles of working with the “positive space” and do simple exercises to learn how to think with light

  • Look at simple techniques to create convincing three-tone sketches

  • Make two sketches, step by step: Bordeaux, France, and a village street in Mexico.

People on the Street 
- Workshop Recording

No cityscape sketch will ever look lively and convincing if the streets remain empty. How to create a figure or a group of people in just a few strokes of watercolor? What is the human figure made of? What should be paid attention to in order for the characters to look alive and convincing? How to correctly arrange figures in space so as not to lose a sense of scale and perspective?

 

In this workshop, we will find answers to these questions, even without any study of anatomy - after all, the secret is very simple... if, of course, you know it...
