Bill Wright's Studio Classes: Observational Perspective

People drawing or painting real locations are often unable to ‘get it to look right,’ and this is likely to be because they're struggling with observational perspective. Demystify this aspect of image making with easy to apply methods you can use when drawing objects, locations and groups of people.

Great that you're up for the Observational Perspective Class! Below is info about it.

Course Description

People drawing or painting real locations are often unable to ‘get it to look right,’ and this is likely to be because they're struggling with observational perspective. Demystify this aspect of image making with easy to apply methods you can use when drawing objects, locations and groups of people.

What we'll do first

The first part of the class will be a look at teaching materials dealing with looking at the real world and methods of getting depictions of it to resemble what's being seen. We'll have breaks and discussions of what' being presented.

...Second

The second part of the class we'll have some drawing tasks to do in the studio, but also time for individual discussion - for example looking at work you've done or help with a specific issue or project you bring to the class.

...Third

Weather and time permitting, we'll go out into the neighbourhood and do some location drawing, applying what's been gone over in the studio.

What to Bring

If you've done some location sketching, please bring some along.

Bring a sketchbook

Some pencils of different hardness/softness, for example H, B, 3B, 4B, 8B

Some pens, could be fine-liners, or if you have a different kind of pen or pens you like. An old-fashioned dip or nib pen might not be practical for sketching on location, but a fountain pen or brush pen or fine-liner would do fine.

Committing to the class

With the small number of students it won't be possible to accommodate enrolees who want to change to a different date. If you withdraw from a class up till 10 days before it runs, you'll get a refund of 50% of the class's cost.After that there won’t be a refund.

Flexible activities within our core topic

An advantage of a really small class is that people can bring up subjects (hopefully related to the class topic!) that they have questions about or are interested in. Or we can modify an activity based on individual interests. The odd question about technical (mechanical) perspective is fine, especially if it relates to observational perspective, but please keep in mind this class is about drawing from looking, not via technical methods. Hopefully you'll emerge from the class ready to have lots of good times drawing perspective from observation!

If any questions please let me know. Best, Bill
