My studio hosted our second Sustained Saturday of the Winter term yesterday. Almost everyone worked in watercolour but you’ll notice, in the critique image below, a very nice pen and ink drawing. It’s the reason for the ‘plus’ in the title of the post.
Last Tuesday, I gave both classes a lesson on thumbnail sketches. Yesterday’s group got the same lesson as well as a similar still-life. Once again, I asked the students to crop their compositions quite tightly. I showed some examples of my thumbnail sketches, including one I prepared from the day’s still-life.
We always have a lot of fun on these Saturdays but the level of concentration was very high. The thumbnail process paid off with some very striking compositons. Our final Sustained Saturday of the Winter term will be held on February 25. There are still a few spots left. Why don’t you join us?
