Quick Sketch

Quick Sketch


A sketch may serve a number of purposes, it may record something that the artist sees, record and develop an idea for later use or serve as a quick way to graphically demonstrate an image, idea or principle. Executed in practically any medium, sketches can be drawn with silverpoint, graphite, pencil, charcoal or pastel. Though watercolour sketches and oil sketches allow for more options still.

Sketching can be therapeutic or serve as an opportunity to honour the intricacy and beauty of something in one’s life, say, for instance, a pet. In Carmen Hui’s Pet Portrait Drawing workshop, discover composition, layout style and tricks to sketch a photo of your own furry loved one. Sort between colour palettes, use grid tools and build depth with Carmen whose work has been featured in exhibitions, gift stores and magazines around Australia.
