|Venice, with jet lag...|
So as our summer sketching season ramps up (and I prepare to leave again for six weeks, including teaching at the USk Symposium in Manchester!), I wanted to share that I'll be giving a talk and quick demo at Daniel Smith Seattle on Sunday, May 22 from 1:30-3:00pm.
Called "Travel Sketching Essentials", I'll show and talk about the equipment I use when traveling...how I've made my easel light and small, the tiny stool that fits in my backpack and weighs nothing, the palette I made and use on location (see below), the travel watercolor brushes and paints I've found and use. If you are interested, I hope to see you there!
|Angkor Wat in Cambodia..painting where it is hot and humid is very different |
from sketching in Seattle! You have to strategize differently about how to layer paint.

Thank you again, Laurel Holmes for this photo! After this trip, I ditched
this stool for a smaller one I found before heading to Asia with only carry-on luggage...
Oh, I just want what we all want: a comfortable couch, a nice beverage, a weekend of no distractions and a book that will stop time, lift me out of my quotidian existence and alter my thinking forever.ReplyDelete
Nice story. I really liked it. My passion is also same. I love to travel and do some creative work along with my travelling. See at https://tonydaniloo.wordpress.com/ReplyDelete
