with G Caruso

The goal of the workshop is to provide tools to artists and sketchers to be able to sketch an urban scene easily from life or to create landscapes and locations for concept art. We will work mainly on visual clues and line perception when drawing from life and on the effect of the point of view in an visual storytelling situation. There will be live demos and studies from movies and traditional art.

We will use watercolors and inks to work on atmosphere and contrast.

Topics Covered:

  • Basic perspective tools
  • How to organize composition, framing and different depth levels/foreground background etc.
  • How to choose what to detail and what to simplify
