Meet the Correspondent: Luis Ruiz > Malaga, Spain$show=/search/label/Luis%20Ruiz

"Since I was a child, I have always loved drawing. As an architect, I was trained to sketch on site in my first year of my studies. I have always considered sketching a wonderful tool in my job to understand things, more in the field of spatial relations than in their material aspect. On the other hand, I have always brought a sketchbook with me in my travels as a much more effective way of keeping a memory than a photograph. But lately my travel sketches tended to be too few and too quick. I have recently found Urban Sketchers, and then discovered the immense joy of sketching outside with no particular task. Reading Usk’s manifesto, I feel especially sensitive with the point of keeping a record of time and place, and I’m changing from sketching just architecture to understand the city as a big scenario for human activity. I live in Málaga, a city in the south of Spain with more than half a million residents and 2,500 years of age; but also the center of a busy and lively metropolitan area, home of an active harbour and a big tourist destination. Now that I have two small children and I do not travel as much as before, I’m trying to show this mixture of old and new in my drawings. It is so rewarding to share my work with so many excellent artists and receive continuous feedback from other members! And, last but not least, to learn from other parts of the world. I'm delighted to join Urban Sketchers." • Luis' art on flickr.

Workshop description:
Good Bones are essential to good sketches!  In a series of three Saturday classes, we’ll cover how to set up the bones of an great architectural sketch, starting with a thorough understanding of architectural perspective, followed by using effective line and tone, and finishing up with an intro to watercolor tools and techniques.  Sign up for one or for all three.

Learning goals:
This workshop will be a true instructional class, based on how I learned to draw in architecture school and how I have taught drawing for many years.

Held at the iconic Pike Place Market--the heart of Seattle--we’ll work inside in the morning in the Goodwin Library meeting room, learning perspective basics by sketching from projected images of buildings and spaces around the world.  In the afternoon, we’ll transition to sketching perspective in the field, to capture the vibrant life and color of the market.
