HOT SHOT 21- How to sketch, when people move…..

It’s nice to get back to these hot shots. I’m so sorry for the massive long wait!

This is Hot shot 21 and it’s all about being able to sketch things when they move and not get frustrated!

Towards the end I’ll be updating you with somethings that  I have been up to and  involved in,  during the long wait and where I’ll be demonstrating before the year ends. Also if you are based in London and want a free ticket to take part the open Studio at Heatherley’s, please let me know and I’ll send you a half day free session to either draw or paint from the model in the open studio at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, starting off in September.

Let’s start with the Hot Shot first!

Its great to put up another HOTSHOT here again! 
This time around it’s HOTSHOT NUMBER 20! And this is all about not letting negative comments stop you from sketching!
Towards the end, I’ll also talk about my next upcoming workshop in London based on the Urban Landscape!

After another break I’m happy to get these two great HOT SHOTS to inspire your sketching!! Before I get going I’ll just love to say my exhibition of paintings and drawings of York is currently on at The Kentmere House Gallery, York. I also have an article in The Artist Magazine (December Issue) titled, “Sketching a Passion”- in the article I explain how I transform my sketches from black and white to colour. Do get a copy if you can, it’s a good read…..I’ll be sharing some of the tips in it later on this blog.

This is another great hot-shot! Here I’ll be sharing a little bit about the concept of letting who you are show through your sketches. Every artist has something special about them, something that makes them unique.

This part of us should be showing through in our sketches! My last post was about Squinting and seeing shapes, click HERE if missed this post.

This is a double hot shot and I have decided to combine them both because they are related!

 

It’s all about having your eyes partially closed in order to see the main shapes in whatever you plan to sketch and then using this to quickly get down some basic marks to get going while sketching this is very helpful when approaching complicated subjects.

 

But before we continue If you missed my last Hot Shot, number 11, on actually sketching what you see and not what you know about what you see. Click HERE

WELCOME TO MY SKETCH INSPIRATION BLOG

SKETCH-INSPIRATION – INTRODUCTION (HOT SHOT 1, 2)

Sketch inspiration is a revolution!

This revolution is my personal package-that has changed the way I see. It has changed the way I approach my art. Everything I see and everything I do – is broken down and simplified into the Sketch! That’s why I call it -The sketch inspiration!

It’s a privilege to share this great change with everyone out there on what has helped me and what has worked for me the past 20 years of sketching. Read the rest of this entry
