Instructor:Gary Yeung
September 23, 2017/ Saturday
2:30 - 5:30 pm
Colour EXP is honored to offer a new sketching workshop with the co-founder of Urban Sketchers Hon Kong, Mr. Gary Yeung, a very active urban sketcher and artist.
Some of you may find it a daunting task to sketch the urban landscapes in a convincing way. Oftentimes when we put elements of a city scene together, they just do not quite fit together to form a coherent dimension. In this workshop, Gary will show you how to construct a convincing live sketch using basic perspective techniques so that elements can all be tied together coherently.

The 3 hour workshop will be conducted in Cantonese supplemented with English, is suitable for beginners 15 years of age and above, and will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to various types of perspective for sketching
  • Technique - guided exercises to practice one point perspective
  • Technique - simple shading with waterccolour
  • Practice - freehand live sketch exercise

Fee includes a Copic Multiliner, all materials needed for the workshop, and a drink of your choice from our café.
Please bring along simple drafting tools such as pencils and eraser.
