Do you want sketch when you travel, but you don’t know to fit it into a tight schedule? Not sure what to pack so that it’s light and easy? Don’t know what to sketch or how to set up when in a new place? Then this fun one day workshop is for you! Ochre Lawson is an experienced artist and teacher who loves to sketch and paint outdoors. Whether she’s hiking with a group in the Swiss Alps or Tasmania or just in her local neighbourhood, she has a wealth of knowledge to make working outdoors easier and fun.

Students spend the day exploring local sites within easy walking distance, doing quick ink pen and watercolour drawings in a small travel journal*. Ochre will demonstrate drawing and watercolour techniques, compositional devices, techniques in drawing perspective and proportion, how to create depth, how to draw trees, water and, streetscapes. This workshop will take place in a picturesque local park near a cafe and amenities. (Location to be advised closer to the day).
