workshop in germany

workshop in germany
Hallo Freunde!
"Vor Ort" is an exhibition and a workshop project organized and hosted by Landesmuseum Mainz and Jenny Adam in association with Urban Sketchers.
I´m happy to say that I’ll be there teaching with such a group of great sketchers and friends: Marina Grechanik, Sebastian Koch, Johanna Krimmel and Inma Serrano.

Join us here!


following is a short description of my workshop: “All you can see! 180º sketching”

Our way to represent the space since « Renacimiento » is conditioned to a maximum 30º viewing angle, which is very limited compared to what we are experiencing while sitting in a place, turning the head, and looking up and down. That’s how I started sketching some curvilinear perspective in a very intuitive way, exploring how to represent a scene as in a sphere or as in a cylinder.
But I’m also used to fit the elements of a scene into the page, making some distortions, or adding the soundtracks of what I’m hearing while sketching, from the people that are talking to me, to the ringing bells from the church behind, or music of a car passing by…
We will explore how to represent a panoramic view in a narrow street, telling the particular mood of the place. In spite of looking only at the architecture, the sketchers will aim to represent a 180º view fitting the people, the street activity and listening to what is happening.

ouessant travel book signature
In march 2017, I was invited by the association « ENKI » to a one month artist residency in the Créac’h semaphore, next to the legendary Créac’h light house of Ouessant.
Ouessant is the furthest west island of Britany, a small dot in the Atlantic Ocean.
First I was welcomed by the storm Zeus with its 200 km/h winds, then by the locals: a bunch of sailors, pirates and heroes who invited me for a glass or two while I was portraying them.
After one month I captured more than 100 of them in my pages.
« Ouessant. un polop chez les maouts »
