After a scenic boat ride along the Danube to the sketching location, we'll get right to the action. Our drawing subject combines nature, architecture and wonderful unique views of the city. Then we spend some time giving some info about our location and view as well as some sketching pointers, including how to approach a complex scene, some insight into composition and perspective, followed by some watercolor "how-to's". We will spend the next 90 minutes or so sketching, drawing and then 60 or so painting create a unique and personalized souvenir of your visit to Budapest, that you create from scratch... No art experience necessary.
I'm an American from Washington DC. A friendly and informative art professional with background teaching beginners children's art classes in Sunday School as well as non-artist adults for professional growth. I went to school for cartooning and animation and have done freelance illustration, animation and storyboarding work for Feld Entertainment, Disney on Ice and the US Department of Energy. I have also exhibited my work at comic cons in the US and Europe over many years.
I love how the serene atmosphere of Budapest's parks that combine with the beauty of the city's architecture.
No need to bring any extra materials. Also, during the colder Autumn and Winter months, and during inclement weather, the boat service can be suspended without notice. In this case, we will draw from one of Budapest's many historic and scenic cafes while enjoying a hot beverage.
