Join us in Barcelona!Posted: January 28, 2013
I am soooooooo excited to announce that I was selected as one of 24 sketchers from around the world who will be teaching workshops at the Urban Sketching Symposium in Barcelona in July! Not only that, fellow Montreal Urban Sketcher Marc Taro Holmes will be teaching as well. My workshop is called “Triad Symphony: Evocative Watercolor Sketches using three primary colours” and I will be showing students colour combinations and theory that I use so often in my own work. A limited palette doesn’t mean limited colour! The lineup of workshops and instructors is truly amazing and my only regret is that because I will be teaching, I can’t attend as many sessions as I did last year.
I spent part of my time yesterday at the museum drawing the Greek and Roman sculptures with some graphite, water-soluble graphite and Inktense pencils. This part of the museum is so quiet, the rooms are dimly lit and I have to say that it was a pretty relaxing experience (especially compared to two weeks ago when I drew in the midst of hundreds of people viewing the Impressionist paintings).
