Take a 10 week travel Sketching Art Journey … My dream … Planning a trip to New York …
I found Erin Hill Sketching on Facebook loved her work and was thrilled when the course was offered in NZ. Friends thought I was mad, 10 weeks travelling from Taupo to Devonport for the Saturday workshop. Why, they asked, you can paint already. Little did they know.
This is what happened on my journey I met: An amazing Tutor Tony McNeight, his quiet manner, his supportive intuitive style enabled me to get out of my comfort zone … I tried hard to be teachers Pet!! Wise words he shared — this is your book you don’t have to share it, use it as an exercise book, practice, you can do it, just look at the shape. No rulers, rubbers. Lots of laughter.
It was so liberating to use a pen (no pencil or rubber). Learning to look at shapes, being quick. Learning to look, no line is wrong, quick colour, the best moment “the courage to sketch on location.” Sharing lovely lunches.
So begin your art journey start with Tony book today. Kia Kaha Artists“
