Sketching ‘en plein air’
The weather is warming up here in Vancouver, and plein air sketching and painting is a ‘hot’ topic. I’ve done a free demo on plein air sketching, and just shot a short video for Opus on the topic.
Why do it?
- bring home personalized momentoes of your travels
- send friends unique postcards that they will love
- it's an enjoyable activity to do on vacation, or just sitting at your favourite neighbourhood cafe
- for me, the most important reason is that it will deepen your experience of the places you visit
If you would like some guidance, the last 2 spots are still available in my upcoming workshop. Join me for two half-days of plein air exploration:
Plein Air Sketching with Watercolor and Ink
Thursday-Friday 9am - 2pm
Douglas Park Community Centre, Vancouver
Call 604-257-8130 or register online
Alternately, a lovely book to inspire you is The Urban Sketching Handbook: Architecture and Cityscapes by Gabriel Campanario. Thanks Josette D. for introducing me to this find : )
