Learn to Sketch Festive Flowers and Foliage
Time & Location
About The Event
Information and materials
Arrangements of flowers and foliage are something that many of us have from time to time in our homes and recording them in your sketchbook is a really nice way to capture and remember them especially if they have be given as gift or mark a special event. The process of looking and drawing them allows you to really enjoy the small details. With this as a base, during this gentle workshop you will learn how to approach sketching a vase of flowers in an expressive and illustrative way.
We will start with some quick scribbles to warm up and then a slower sketch, both using a range of media. At the end of the class I will also share a really simple fun technique for creating quick floral vase illustrations for greetings cards and stationary. As usual, 'normal' art rules don't apply as we freely sketch and scribble our way to creative freedom!
Suitable for all experience levels.
