Your Travel Sketching Adventure

Betsy will inspire you to sketch your adventures!

Workshop Description

Travel sketching around town or while vacationing can be one of the most enjoyable aspects of any travel adventure. In this two day workshop we will learn how to see, basic perspective, sketching and basic watercolor techniques. Several different styles of sketching will be covered to help you find the one or two that best suits you. Our time together will consist of demonstrations, sketching and watercolor practice.
While learning in the controlled environment of the studio you will develop confidence needed to then sketch the scenic village of Tubac. Spending time out on location sketching will be an important part of you’re learning experience. We will review the challenges you faced and find helpful solutions for you going forward on your own. You will leave the workshop with knowledge and skills needed to sketch wherever you go on your travel adventures.
No previous experience is required. All experience levels can benefit.

About Betsy

Betsy is an award winning painter who enjoys the challenge of new subjects, new mediums and new places. Capturing memories and vistas in paint on canvas or paper with oil, soft pastel, gouache, acrylic, cold wax and watercolor on location or in the studio. I enjoy them all as each offers unique qualities for each new work.

After enjoying my artist journey for over 30 years I have a new found love, teaching. I enjoy helping others avoid some of the challenges I have encountered. I have never met a new medium I’ve not enjoyed trying or teaching.
