DC Sketchers @ Capitol Hill Arts Workshop

The Perception of Edges - Blind Contour Drawing

DC Sketchers met last Saturday at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop to begin our Spring 1 session. We set up a still life of torn corrugated cardboard, leaves and kale and scribbled lines on brown kraft paper.

We learned how to sensitively see and record the intricacies of all the edges in these things, including the wrinkles in our palms.

Next Saturday, 2/19, we'll be continuing our careful study of edge/line by exploring contour drawing at the U.S. Botanic Garden - one of our more relaxing venues.

Check out the DC Sketcher's itinerary for the next seven Saturdays. We meet from 10am to Noon.
