I realise that I need to do a dump of my sketches from Amsterdam now, or l may never find time to share them. So here they are. Almost all of these were done at the Urban Sketchers Symposium which was held here this year.
Sketching the wonky houses along the Herengracht in Amsterdam.
A quick sketch of a bicycle with a child carrying module.
All the goody bags lined up at the registration desk this afternoon for all the Urban Sketchers Symposium workshop participants.
Final, unfinished sketch from the Marion Rivolier workshop on capturing the flow of sky and water with watercolour.
Final sketch of statues based on Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, Róisin Curé workshop using sepia ink.
Extending your page to include the images that are important to you in a scene. Karen Sung workshop, 1st piece.
NEMO, the science museum, final Sketchwalk of Symposium.
I especially like how you captured the night canal scene. The water is lively and mobile, as reflections are at night. I think it’s a beautiful pattern you have created as well as being true to the real scene.
Thanks Claudia! That was painted only in available light so I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Earlier in the day we had done the colour mixing in our class so I had a good recollection of how to mix those dark colours.
Great work. I love the idea of extending the page to fit the images you want onto it. How many times have I started a sketch only to think, I should have started further over??!!
I also know that feeling too well.
