A Sense of This Place – Sketching/Photo Walk
This event is specifically designed for artists and photographer looking for fresh inspiration.
The walk should be a two hour event to wander through a local place of interest, as a group, collecting photo references, sketches and perhaps details of natural pattern colours and textures. The walk should ideally finish at somewhere,where we can get coffee, sit down and discuss and share what was learned and inspired by the place.
Participant should bring a camera (a phone camera is fine) and a small sketch book (A7 to A5 size).
Topics covered may include
1) Improving Seeing – through some simple exercises
2) Why a sketch book if you’re just a photographer
3) Notan (compositional sketches/photos)
4) 5 is good, 10 is better
5) Tone (captures reality) Colour(generates emotion) Texture (interests the viewer’s eye)
