What You'll Get

Learn how to maximize your time as you sketch and draw the landscapes during your travels. Emphasis includes how to extract your vision from the landscape using elements of composition; how to render basic forms of the landscape and incorporate line, gesture, and value; and how to add color. Using water-based pens and colored pencils, you will begin your own travel sketchbooks using inspirational travel photos. Water-soluble sketch pens will be available for purchase from the instructor.

Supply List

  • A sketchbook with good drawing/watercolor paper; cold press; no bigger than 8” X 10. I like a HORIZONTAL oriented pad with a side spiral, approximately 6” X 9”.
  • Waterbased (aquarelle) pencils. Prismacolor is preferred (the leads are softer & are more fully pigmented); Derwent or Berol are also fine. Please bring a set of at least 24 or bigger. I recommend the biggest set you feel comfortable purchasing! Try to avoid student –grade pencils; they lack pigment/coverage (Reeves; Crayola; Prismacolor Scholar series are examples).
  • There is also a colored pencil on the market called “Inktense” by Derwent, they come in a set of 12; you can SUPPLEMENT with these; they are OPTIONAL.
  • Colored Pencils; Prismacolor Premier preferred; larger sets recommended.
  • Small soft nylon bristle brushes, a flat and a round.
  • Non-permanent black ink pens. My favorite is a brand by Staedler called LUMOCOLOR. These pens will be available for you to purchase from the instructor. They will be packaged in sets of three: M, F, S.
  • A GENERAL sketchbook for use with GRAPHITE PENCILS
  • Graphite pencils for sketching, softer leads 3b, 4b, 5b
  • Erasers
  • Your photos of past travels that include landscape
  • Cardboard to mount the photos, white artists tape
  • White paper we can tear or cut into strips for mounting the photos
  • Small container for water
Weather permitting, we will be drawing outside for a portion of the class. Please bring whatever you need to make yourself comfortable. That could include a small chair or stool, sunhat, small table, clothing in layers, a water bottle. An easel is not necessary.
