Reflecting back on Drawing Water
Last summer accomplished multi media artist, drawing instructor and scuba diver Klara Hobza led the Drawing Water Workshop. Equal parts drawing workshop and immersive experience, the meditative nature of this class led to some stunning work made by the participants. This summer we are offering a second edition of this workshop. So if these images look inspiring to you, you can join us! Sign up on our website.
Drawing Water Workshop
with Klara Hobza (artist, drawing instructor and expert scuba diver)
Immerse yourself in deep observation and self-expression through the process of drawing water in motion. Explore how observational drawing can lead to abstract imagery by focusing on the unique qualities of water such as movement, rhythm and texture.
After an introduction to water images spanning from Japanese masters to contemporary artists, we will exercise basic drawing techniques that help us depict water in movement and water as a reflective surface.
We will apply a mixed-media drawing approach, layering line drawing with liquid ink brush and charcoal. Out in the field we will practice both quick motion studies and multi layered long studies. The observational and immersive techniques acquired will prove valuable in the process of understanding the craft of making images.
