Title: Urban sketches
Post by: Gita on October 08, 2017, 03:32:11 PM
I am planning to do a series of urban sketches. Shari Blaukopf ( craftsy.com) is a wonderful teacher for getting into this subject. Since I love pen and ink with line wash, I am enjoying her video classes. This is the Berlin Cathedral church called "Berliner Dom", the biggest church of Berlin.
As always all comments are most welcome.

Very nicely done Gita, I like the composition.  O0     This is something I will have a go at. Have wanted to for a while. I think line and wash is perfect for Urban/Plein Air sketching. I guess I'll find out how well it works with pastel as well!  ;D
Title: Re: Urban sketches
Post by: Gita on October 08, 2017, 10:58:05 PM
Thank you Val, I think pastels would go well, too. For me pastels are a second choice since the colours could smudge during transportation. In this class Shari Blaukopf uses a platinum carbon pen which can be refilled with ink. I use a normal ink proof fountain pen.
This is another one based on a  free reference photo from Linda Cookson from the free photos section take in Galaway city. Thank you Linda for sharing the photo with us. I chose to add some people to it.

You might find another thread with similar information. I exactly don't know what's happening when I upload the pictures.
I would love to hear your thoughts to this.

Like the brown ink.... it's not as dramatic as the black... more homey/ understated/ comfortable. An entirely different mood. All of these sketches are impressive. By the way... I did try to send the wallaby photos to you via vasa online but somehow I don't think they reached you. Never mind, I'll have another go at putting the wallabies up as PB ref photos. Maybe the computer won't have a hissy fit this time!

 :thankyou: very much, Val! The best compliment I can get in urban sketching, I suppose. You recognised the place from the drawing! Linley is right!
I am fond of harbour scenes. They create a feeling of wistfulness in me.
Title: Re: Urban sketches
Post by: Val on October 15, 2017, 09:20:32 AM
When I think of all the harbours I have visited it awakens the wanderlust in me. Seeing your painting brought back so many memories of the place, the people, the sights, smells, and tastes. The bittersweet sorrow of departing, but oh.... the joyous expectation of the next adventure, the next harbour. What vistas await? I must keep on... perhaps there is someone looking out to sea, someone waiting, just to meet me.   :boat:

Post by: Gita on October 16, 2017, 09:08:09 AM
Val, I envy you for your voyages and great experiences! Its great to share them with you, especially your pictures.
Liz, I love pen and ink. I have such a flow experience while drawing with the fine nib of the pen. I searched to buy the carbon platinum pen from Japan which Shari, the instructor, uses. But at present they are not selling this in Germany. Instead I am using a Lamy art pen (fine nib). Its also good.

Thank you Val, Liz, Patricia, Aniz.
I am trying to improve my techniques in urban sketching. There are different types of approaches from what I am learning in Craftsy. In this approach I drew contours of the Berliner Dom without lifting up the pen from the paper. After that, I applied an undertone in grisaille technique and lastly added some colour on top.
The whole process takes around 30 min- 45 min.
I am starting to like this a lot and hope to do more of this during my travels.
Any comments or suggestions to this?

That's such a nice loose watercolor, I'm jealous.

Urban sketching is everywhere! I as in a group in Florida 2 years ago and I just joined a group here in Arizona last week.
Here's our first trip, to Old Town Casa Grande.

If you are interested in Urban Sketching join the Urban Sketchers Group on Facebook and you will see dozens of super pieces of art every day.

I was with the Berlin urban sketchers today in the plaster museum for ancient statues. I chose to draw Aphrodite.
At the end of the session, a museum visitor asked me if my sketch was finished and if so he would like to BUY it! I was so thrilled! I had to think of what Nolan had said, recently.
So I sold it! Wanted to share this information with you. 😃


After coming back home, I felt so sorry to have departed myself from my lovely sketch, that I felt compelled to draw this again.😅

Yesterday some Berlin Urban sketchers met to draw fellow artists.
So all of us sat quietly trying to catch a pose of a front artist. Funny situation. Many people passed by... and gave second glances at us.
Here is my sketch after about 30-40 minutes. I had gone there after work just with my paper block, water colours, Just only brush, size 10 round and water.
It was a good learning process for me that minimal utensils are enough for sketching. I could have added more darks but I stopped since I was so hungry and the hummus restaurant a couple of meters away was too distracting.😅 🍜🍲🍹
Got the “Berlin Sketchers” stamp on the sketch fast and rushed

Yes nice, all the needed details are there.

I keep thinking I should sketch (I listened to both Dennis and Nolan lessons again last week)... I start well but get so caught up in details... it is not a sketch anymore.   Someone suggested a timer, I will likely have a full book of 10% done sketches!

Just to get an idea, how long do you typically spend doing a sketch?
Title: Re: Urban sketches
Post by: Gita on September 24, 2019, 07:21:46 PM
Thanks Mea! I think the completeness may due to the value differences.
Annie, I drew this in 30 min while waiting in front of the Zoo entrance. I start  to sketch by just drawing the outlines till I finish the gross picture. Then I do the shadings and in the end the colouring.

Gita, your twin towers are beyond brilliant.  O0   I do love how you have ´framed´ the painting and then broken the lines. Beautiful.   :congrats:
Just wondering if it would be possible to try a little photoshop type wizardry to remove the crease lines from your photograph  :think:   I´m not techie at all in that regard... but possibly?  :confused:
Banner job Gita, just love it!   :congrats:         :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you Bill, Annie, Teresa!

Val, :smitten:, you can wear your socks again.. ;D I appreciate your comment so much!
I guess I could remove the book creases digitally. Will try.

I erased the crease of the book and some minor changes like Val suggested. Nolan, I agree it looks a lot better without the crease.
The towers are actually turquoise in colour.

there you go :heeha:
You should be able to use the effects in your app to adjust the colour of the image so it matched the artwork O0

Oh yes, Nolan. I ordered a A4 book with brown sheets, so that I don’t need to correct the original. 😃
