Guest Post: Landscape Shortcuts with John Muir Laws

  • Jul 9, 2013 · 10:00 AM

John Muir (Jack) Laws is doing free sketching demonstrations at 5 different locations. This hour-and-a-half class will be repeated five times over two days throughout the Bay Area. See locations and times below. These events are free, but I strongly encourage you to put some money into Jack's donation bucket to support this work.

Tuesday July 9

Marin County Wildcare 10:00 AM

San Francisco Building 989 (near the Warming Hut in the Presidio) 12:30 PM

San Mateo County Edgewood Park Education Center, 3:30 PM

Wednesday July 10

Alameda County Oakland Museum of California, 12:00 noon

Santa Clara County McClellan Ranch: Santa Clara Valley Audubon 3:00 PM


Here's the event description on Jack's website:

Landscape drawings still bogging down in detail? In this free workshop we will take a look at some common elements in landscape drawing and explore ways of quickly and accurately reproducing their textures, structure, and suggested detail. We will take a close look at ways of drawing clouds and skies, grasslands, woodlands, rocks, and water. With this bag of tricks you can supercharge your plien-aire drawings and quickly represent the landscapes you observe.

For more information, go to Jack's events page
or the Nature Journal Club facebook page

Note that this is a Guest Post: not an official SF Sketchers meetup, but a sketching-related event that I think would appeal to some members of our group.

    Thanks to Hank for catching the confusing dates originally posted. I copy and paste text from previous meetups, and sometimes don't check everything properly.
