Urban Landscape In Perspective – Andrew Cheddie Sookrah

Virtual Workshop
Saturday, January 30 – 9:30 am to 4:00 pm

We will explore the art of observing and collecting visual and intuitive information from your reference and presenting it as your interpretation of that scene showing the strong connection between objects in the landscape.
Besides the technical aspects of basic drawing techniques, including perspective, simplification of complex shapes, technique, colour, tonal values, style, etc, we will also explore the process of painting – Objective, Decision, Action.

We will explore:

  • Perspective
  • The seven elements of design: balance, unity, movement, rhythm, pattern, contrast & focal point
  • Drawing a relationship between lines informing subjects in our urban landscape
  • The process we work in: identifying challenges facing us as we progress, finding solutions

Andrew will begin with a demonstration followed by personal one-to-one guidance and advice on how to continue to develop your skills. Artists will paint with review and feedback through the day.

There will be a 30 minute lunch break at 12.30 and a review session from 3.15 top 4.00 p.m.
