I've been so busy with multiple sketch outings, I didn't realize I never posted mine from Wednesday at Annie Wright Schools!
The Tacoma Sketchers Wednesday outing for July was held at the Annie Wright Schools. Jean, one of our members, teaches there and arranged for us to have access.
a tour of the school, I decided I would attempt the perspective
challenge offered by this view of the cloisters. I really loved the
Tudor beauty of the building. I also really love cloister walks and gardens.
is the most difficult perspective view I've ever attempted. I nearly
gave up during the pencil drawing. But I persevered and got it mostly
right. There is a bit of wonky-ness but I'm pleased overall. I did
need the help of my perspective tool as I didn't quite believe what I
saw. As Stephanie Bower said in her perspective workshop, "don't believe your eye".
sketching, a group of middle school aged children arrived with their
teacher, "Dr. Wizard," and carrying TREBUCHETS!!! How wonderful. I got
a close up view of the good Doctor's expert teaching on how to fine
tune the aim of these small weapons. Apparently, there will be a
contest on Friday, scoring for accuracy and distance. The young girls
closest to me were doing very well in accuracy.
