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.

Join us for our  “Line to Color Workshop” in beautiful Tacoma, Washington.  We are always amazed
at how sketchable this town is, that is why we are taking our workshop to Tacoma.  Have fun sketching and eating dinner at the historic Swiss Pub Friday night.  See Dale Chihuly’s Glass Art and Accordion collection which decorate the oldest watering hole in Tacoma. 

On Saturday sketching workshops will be held in the Museum District on Pacific Avenue.  We want to thank  Tacoma Art Museum who is opening a workshop room for us. Meet up Saturday morning at the Tacoma Art Museum, pass by Union Station and Washington State History Museum to the Museum of Glass and Chihuly Bridge of Glass.  With sweeping views of the Commencement Bay and Mt. Rainier, this is an inspirational location for sketching.

Sunday morning we will meet up in the Theatre District and Antique Mall District to sketch in this historic neighborhood.  Afternoon sketch crawl location to be determined.  

In this intensive workshop, architectural drawing instructors Frank Ching and Gail Wong will walk you through clear steps covering the complete process of making a sketch on location, from the time you draw the first line until you apply the last touch of color. This workshop will occur over a 3 day period meeting at various historic locations in Tacoma and will consist of  dinner with a 1-hour keynote presentation on Friday,  two 4-hour sessions on Saturday, two 2-hour sessions on Sunday and a final 1.5-hour  sketch crawl Sunday afternoon with instructors available for help.

Topics will cover, perspective, composition, process in developing the sketch, approaches to watercolor and value. Ideas introduced in this session will be demonstrated on site and practiced in the following sessions with one on one help from Frank and Gail.
