Learning goals:
After taking this workshop students will be able to:
Paint figures using simple brush strokes.
Focus on basic form to make impressions of people.
Place people in context with believable proportions.
Use values to distinguish people from context.
Blend shapes to create groups, then add distinctions as desired.
We will spend some time playing with watercolor to create water people for fun and practice. Then we will work on settings using the surroundings of our location as our focus. The outcome will be more confidence and inclination to include people in urban sketches. Students will learn to use different approaches in different sketching situations.

Supply list:
Sketch paper (instructor will provide)
1 4B or 6B pencil
1 HB or mechanical pencil for pre-watercolor
1 watercolor paint brush, size 10 or larger
1 waterbrush
Water and water container
Paper towels for dabbing brushes
Watercolor set
Your favorite sketchbook for final sketch

Jane Wingfield is an artist and urban sketcher in Olympia. She got her start at the Chicago Art Institute Childrens Program and later studied art at the University of Washington, Western Washington State University and Evergreen State College working in oil painting and printmaking. She also studied sumi-e painting in Tokyo. Being an urban sketcher has given her the gumption to come out of the closet, pull out her sketchbook and start sketching just about anywhere.
