Urban Sketching for Beginners: Park
I want to take you on a little trip …sketching every day is a fantastic way to sharpen your skills. Sometimes it is hard to take the first step outside the studio and focus on sketching and painting while feeling like a sitting duck with all the people, the distractions and the city hustle all around you.
What to do, you ask?
I have come up with a little series to try and make it easier for those who take the very first steps outside. We will start with a class about sketching in the Park. It is the least stressful environment, usually not very dense and hectic, and there is less probability that people will interrupt you. I really wanted to be there with you in the moment, so I opted for recording as I was in the park including my voice – let me know in the reviews if you like sharing that moment or if you rather prefer I do voice overs all the way for the next videos for better audio quality!
The next classes will then slowly increase the difficulty – we will be looking at architectural detail in class 2, slowly work our way up in class 3 doing a street scene in perspective until we reach the highest difficulty level in a dense environment with lots of movement and little time to sketch, such as a bar, in class 4.
