Field Sketching, Metolius River Preserve

  • Deschutes Land Trust Bend OR (map)

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and botanical illustrator Rebecca Brown-Thompson for a two-day workshop on field sketching. We will spend the first day in the studio honing basic sketching techniques valuable for all forms of sketching. Train your eye to see negative spaces, shapes, proportion, perspective, and tones. Learn flora and fauna drawing tips and how to draw what you see, not what you think you see. The second day will be spent at Metolius River Preserve practicing and expanding on what we learned on Saturday as well as developing skills and style in documenting insights on nature. This two-day workshop is open to adults of all skill levels. A list of supplies that attendees will need to bring with them will be sent prior to the workshop. Both days will run from 9:00 am-4:00 pm
