Urban Sketching Symposium - Santo Domingo Day 2Saturday, July 14, 2012
Started off with a sketch of the Parque Colon using some distortion and limited colors.
Then, I saw some men playing checkers (damas) so I sketched them with warm and cool colored pencils. Can you feel the heat of the game in the air?
I also did a quick sketch of the square at the very end of the workshop:
The afternoon session was "Color Games." We started off using a warm color line and cool color line to draw the same scene, paying attention to how the colors we chose to color them in varied:
Next we were asked to sketch the same scene using regular and then unnatural colors (that threatening sky did open up for a few minutes, but the showers stopped pretty quickly):
For the last exercise, we paired off, drew something, and handed it to our partner to color in!
Here's my drawing of BJ, colored by her:
