Drawing Fundamentals: Gesture & Negative Shapes (Saratoga)

January 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Start the Nature Journaling New Year with a look at the most important skills for getting an image on the paper. Using gesture sketching and negative shapes together allows you to block in basic shapes and see fundamental masses. Once you have this down, the details, color, and value can drop onto a framework that has already solved many of the challenges of going from eye to paper. In this workshop you will:

  • Increase your drawing speed
  • Practice how to start any drawing
  • Learn to see negative shapes everywhere
  • Loosen up, get the big picture, and relax

Bring a sketchbook, pencil, and non-photo blue pencil (if you have one).

All ages and experience levels are welcome.  No registration necessary,

$20 suggested donation.
