Zīmē ziemas ainavas!
Snow surrounded the area and the forest, everything was good to portrait, but the problem was the cold outside.
Anyway, at the end 7 brave persons came willing to learn some curious facts, tricks and secrets about translate the details of the background and the nature to paper with a pencil, a pen, crayons and oil pastels.
As one article about this event says, it was also important in this event to gather and meet some people sharing a same activity and hobby which is drawing (something I master...well...err...well, yes!...not as much as I wish. But I persist).
The most hideous setback was the freezing temperatures, which made that not many people wanted to risk their health going throught a park with -20/-15 degrees. This rages you even more when four days later then you find 0/5 celsius (which is WARM temperature here) and that temperatures now are softer and better to stay outside, but yeah, the event was set before.
Anyway, here goes a summary about the day:
All the crew gathered! levels differed from art school students to persons who didn't ever draw.
The "teacher" explains a little bit the steps to each pupil. (I think I really need to change the fashion because I look like a bowed fisherman in economical crysis).
fisherman teacher explaining more details of landscapes and talking about the next task and desperately selling his few North Sea sardines.
Pupils tried to do their best despite all those temperatures and with the gloves put on them.
One of the first sketches made by one of the assistants. First we focused on pencil style to go then to more complex techniques to end making a macedoine of oil pastels.
