It's a wonderful time of year with friends for dinner, music, joviality, crisp temperatures and hopefully time to enjoy. Take time to sketch a bit and relax.
November 17, 18, 19 is the last Basic Workshop in our home studio for this year. There's room for you and you can bring a friend to sketch with. It's a possible gift to yourself. Come join us: firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-318-9291
The very last workshop of the year will be at Tohono Chul Park (also in Tucson) November 30 - December 2: email@example.com or 520-742-6455, ext. 228.
There are no plans for workshops in December or January as we figure out what we will do next.
THIS MONTH'S TIP
I was asked if you wet the pen line and let it dry before adding color. No. The line of the Pilot Razor Point pen is both your skeleton of the drawing and your source of value change. Hit it with water and let it dry & it will remain a dull and obvious line - never giving shades. Hit it with solor in your brush and you get the shades in the object. Following are examples of doing it both ways.
After a nasty summer we finally are in 'the other season.' You can sit in the sun and not become hardtack! Would you want to come to a Sketching Retreat (maybe a short daily lesson, then just sketch with a convivial group in the Tucson area, shop, eat, relax, share. Stay at the Sheraton on Grant which has offered a great winter rate of $125/day for my group. If interested, what month(s) would work for you?
Enjoy the weather, the fun with friends, THANKSGIVING! Thanks for being such an inspiration.
