Improve skill observing shapes in perspective

Coloured pencil and ink

There will be a short presentation and a demonstration and warm up exercises on perspective drawing of houses on steep slopes. We will then walk to Trammies Corner.

This workshop is part of the Paddington Urban Art Exhibition, on show at the Latrobe Artspace from 20 - 24 September 2022. The show displays work by Brisbane Urban Sketchers who have been creating sketches and paintings in the suburbs in and around Paddington in preparation. As an Urban Sketcher, Peter Richards has also contributed pieces to the show.

The Paddington Urban Art Exhibition will also incorporate a glimpse into urban history, with photographs and stories curated by the local online history group Paddington Then and Now.

This exhibition is kindly supported by the Brisbane City Council, Cr. Peter Matic of Paddington Ward, Jonty Bush M.P., and Snapshot Storytelling.
