Sketching On The Spot with Line and Watercolour with Bob Altwein

February 29, 2020


Saturday, February 29 11:30AM – 1:00PM

Come join Bob as he explores the different techniques utilized by on-the-go sketchers! He will cover the many ways one can create a sketch including composition, the power of negative and white space, adding watercolour and also incorporating collage and mixed media.

A graphic designer for most of his life, Bob first started sketching when he was in high school, then through his Vancouver School of Art (later Emily Carr) years and into his late 20s. Shortly after retiring in 2012, he returned to sketching and has been a co-organizer with the Vancouver Urban Sketchers Meet Up. Also did an artist residency in Eastend, Sask, in 2017. Last year, he was on a seven week trip in Ukraine, Germany and France which included a lot of sketching. He has also connected with urban sketchers in Kyiv, Hamburg, Berlin and Paris.
