Symposium Day 3:
I attended Workshop 1 – Curved perspectives – Sketching 360 degree Panoramas by Arno Hartmann.
I was really interested in learning this topic. His guidance was so well that this challenging thing seems being understood by every participant.
Next I visited Stephanie Bower’s Workshop23: Soaring Spaces
In this class, we learned how to set up basic structure using rectangle to measure. We also learned how to apply specific colors to finish.
In the afternoon, I saw Delphine’s Demo 2 – From splash to line. She says she stopped making her work just look like a photo, instead, seek more free and improvised expression. She hold the very tip of the pencil for that purpose.
Later I joined Sketch Walk E and like most of other participants, drew the cute and characteristic pup: Peveril of the Peak. By seeing each and everyone’s work, I can feel how much this place is being loved. This time I try to make it look a vignette. Just like another piece I finished early that morning: Harby’s Crown Ales.
