In this workshop Jane will demonstrate tools and techniques to help you to gain confidence in sketching from life, whether for travel, urban sketching, botanical studies or just for fun. We’ll explore different sorts of pencils, pens and inks, create the perfect sketching watercolour palette, look at layouts and lettering and discover many ways to make wonderful sketchbook pages to create indelible memories of your travels and experiences. Some plein air painting will be included if possible. The workshop will include personalised palette consultations and is suitable for beginners or those with more experience.
