My Urban Sketcher's Workshop "Creating Collections of Everyday Moments" on April 22.

I had a great time teaching an Urban Sketcher's workshop "Creating Collections of Everyday Moments" on April 22. The Los Altos location worked out great as we were able to have some comfortable sitting spaces in the center of a busy street but not trampled over by many people walking by.

I shared my sketchbooks while working through my talking points and then gave out some samples of paper and stickers I use and showed a bunch of my own tiny sketch kits which we used in the workshop extensively.

I was too busy teaching and did not take any photos of the process but these are some of the sketchkits and my current sketchbook as well as handout I gave to all the participants.

The group was working hard and asked many interesting questions. I learned a lot from them while we worked through three different exercises.

I am looking into putting together a workshop around using liquid inks / liquid watercolors and another one on gouache painting in the field. Let me know if you are interested in any of those!

Trip to Bonaire - Underwater Adventures - Part 8 and Underwater Sketching Process Photo


Obviously two watercolor portraits of my favorite Bonaire fish friends were done at the table, based on the underwater sketches :)

Note how young grouper waiting for it's dinner inside the coral formation - holding it's position with the tail and pectoral fins.
