It's been something of a travel marathon the past three months, proving to be too difficult to post to the blog or anywhere else. Having a computer (can it already be full???) and phone (didn't like the heat) that didn't work well, didn't help!
So now, after this post, I am going to go back to the beginning of the summer to show-and-tell you all about Fort Worth, Rome, Civita, Barcelona, The Hague, London, and yes, finally Manchester...oh and Denver too!!!!!! Yes, you can still cling to a few more warm days.
Last week, I flew to Denver to film my second Craftsy class, called
"The Essentials of Sketching Architecture". Believe me, that name raises the bar--it's a lot to live up to!
The class will cover things like building materials, sloping surfaces, and even arches (which are not shaped like horseshoes!)
I will encourage you to think and draw like an architect.
I also make lots of connections between the abstract world of perspective in books and the how-to's of how you can make a sketch on location.
The class dovetails well with both the first class,
"Perspective for Sketchers"
and also my book:
The Urban Sketching Handbook: Understanding Perspective.
|And here is the crew! Marshall, Amana the producer, Nick, and Bob who did sound and took the photo.|
Also thanks to the Craftsy folks--Anna, Danica, Tommy, Molly, Greg...
Launch date for "The Essentials of Sketching Architecture" is late September.

OK, up next, 7 weeks of travel sketching. Buckle your seat belts!
