Urban Sketching with Ink & Watercolour

WEEKEND ONE (2-day): June 22-23, 2019   Classes run from 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.

Urban Sketching with Ink & Watercolour

The Urban Sketching movement is catching on, and for good reason! In this workshop students will learn to create quick and loose watercolour sketches that capture the mood and essence of a place. We will investigate and practice the choice of subject and composition while learning a systematic approach to sketching your environment. We will complete our works with a series of watercolour washes.

Weather permitting, we will work outdoors. Have fun and join the movement!

 All levels welcome

Peter Loebel

Peter is a visual artist whose inspirations are the human figure and plein-air subjects. He works with charcoal, ink, and watercolour and develops his compositions from a quick gestural drawing done on site. Each representation attempts to break the static condition of the subject, revealing a vibrant movement and creating a transitional snapshot.

Peter was born in Germany and moved to Canada in 2001. He has a background in engineering and in 2010 finished his MA in Architecture. His fascination with figure drawing roots back to 2001 when he joined Basic Inquiry, a life drawing studio in Vancouver, and later joined the board. He is now life-drawing in Victoria and is also associated with a variety of local plein-air art groups. He gives workshops in Urban Sketching and Figure Drawing and is represented by two galleries on Vancouver Island.



Classes are open to students at least 19 years of age at the start of their registered workshop
