Amersfoort workshop photosPosted: July 22, 2019 Filed under: Uncategorized 6 Comments
This teaching trip in the Netherlands has been so busy, especially since the Urban Sketchers Symposium is about to start, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t post a few photos from my workshop in Amersfoort before moving on to Symposium sketches.
It was an amazing three days in a very beautiful place with a very skilled group of urban sketchers. That makes it such a pleasure to teach. When the level is that high, I can cover so many topics in a short time. And although I don’t have time to write a long post, I selected some photos that illustrate pretty much everything we did, including a lesson in limited colour palettes, a morning of simplifying a complex scene at the flower market, and a line and wash demo at the city gates. Special thanks to my wonderful organizer Tylara for this special invitation to teach in Amersfoort. And to Govert Van Ginkel for being our workshop photographer.
You are right – such a talented bunch of urban sketchers. It’s a pleasure to teach high level students in one group without having to catch up less skilled students (which is not bad, but levels can make things more difficult). I think they are lucky to have you for a teacher, and you to have them as students, and to be able to travel to beautiful locations every summer to enjoy art and painting.
Great to see this. What a happy group and terrific work.
