Now that it’s all, my local farmers’ market is a good bit quieter. But it still runs, all year round, twice a week.
This was the market about three weeks ago, still quite summery.
But when the Silva’s Orchard apple stand shows up, you know it’s fall.
Still lots to draw, with all the root vegetables and peppers that have showed up.
If you’re in a colder place than I am, perhaps the markets are all done for the season, and will only be back in spring. And maybe you’ll want to visit then and sketch them through the spring and summer?
I enjoyed running this online workshop, Sketching Vignettes, a couple of weeks ago. And since both sessions filed up so quickly, I’ve opened a 3rd session for everyone that missed out. Want to join us? Read on.
NOTE: This is NOT an urban sketching workshop, but the skills you learn are transferrable to working on location.
Learn to Sketch Fearlessly by Simplifying a Busy Scene
Saturday, December 11th, 7am–9:30am Pacific Time
When you sketch on location, are you overwhelmed by all that you see? Do you struggle to simplify the scene before you? Have you been afraid to dive in and sketch the subject because it involves people? In this online workshop, themed around a Farmers’ Market, you will learn to sketch quick vignettes that capture the energy and essence of a place and its people.
I will share skills designed for and transferrable to working on location, including composing vignettes and thinking in visual stories. You will learn to draw sketches fearlessly, regardless of subject matter, and get tips on how to begin sketching people.
I have only a few more seats open in this workshop. Click here to sign up and join in!
