Today was all about rounds and shapes darks and lights. Everyone bounced in (always a good sign) and after going over some of last weeks work we hit our ‘straps’ with a warm up followed by  colour layering – always a great exercise. We then  learnt how to sketch trees – quickly!!   before that tree gets  up and walks off –  🙂 Though speed is an essence of travel sketching this comes with time and confidence as I guide my students through. Then it was out onto the street to REALLY draw a tree ! Some great use of colour, each sketcher  with their own approach and style.

Down to Corellis Cafe in Devonport for some yummy food and coffee and  … you guessed it – more sketching – quietest table I’ve ever sat at.   🙂
