February 15, 2020


Saturday, February 15 11:00AM – 12:30PM
Saturday, February 15 2:00 – 3:30PM

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.

Bob sketched when he was in high school, through his Vancouver School of Art (later Emily Carr) years and into his late 20s. Otherwise he was a graphic designer for most of his working life. Shortly after retiring in 2012, he returned to sketching and has been a co-organizer with the Vancouver Urban Sketchers Meet Up, since then. 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.
