Reportage Drawing in Oakland with Dawood (Marion) Sekhem
This workshop aims to focus on loosening up and drawing complex scenes with energy and expression and without hesitation or fear. During this workshop you will learn various methods, techniques, tips and tricks for how to effectively and boldly draw buildings, cityscapes, moving people and cars. We will also be drawing while riding public transit buses and trains. I will be doing lots of demonstrations to show you how I draw on public transit vehicles.
This is for beginners who wish to develop confidence as well as the advanced who would like to break out of a rigid routine and draw more loosely.
We will be drawing on-location in different areas of Oakland, riding trains (Bart), buses and doing some walking.
