Often a complex and busy scene can get us very excited. There is so much to see and draw. We just want to quickly capture everything and put them down on paper. This is also where our fear and struggle start to arise.
Just before the pencil or pen is about to hit the paper, we feel overwhelmed by the daunting complexity of the location and can suddenly feel very lost. I know even experienced sketchers can feel this way. We often ask ourselves where do I even begin the sketch and how to deal with this complexity?
Hence, I find it most helpful to always have a few important thinking tools to overcome these moments of uncertainty and help reduce panic. Creating a clear and directed approach to our thinking and sketching is vital and can keep our sketching experience fresh and playful.

This workshop uses a shape drawing approach to strengthen our observation, help us establish ways to simplify our thinking and drawing process on-location. I will include simple techniques I use to attack and deal with complex complicated scenes. The workshop will demonstrate the Addition, Subtraction, Division and Multiplication method to achieve dynamic shape driven compositions.
