Today was the 2nd half of my workshop at the Penticton Art Gallery. We went over the successes and challenges of their sketchbook experiences of the week, and then we set loose in and around the gallery. The current exhibit in the main gallery was perfect for sketching - very textural 3 dimensional work in a variety of materials. Between this and the Japanese garden behind the gallery, there was no shortage of complex subject matter! I really enjoyed this whole workshop experience. The group was fun and very keen. Some really great sketches have emerged already, and I think there’s some real interest to keep some kind of sketch group going. Stay tuned!
