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.

Line to Color Workshop: Orange County, California May 1st - 3rd, 2015


This workshop just sold out.  If you are interested in upcoming Line to Color Workshops or being on a wait list Contact Gail Wong via the following email address gail(at)glwarc(dot)com.

Join Frank Ching and Gail Wong for a weekend workshop in Southern California to sketch  Mission San Juan Capistrano and the Beach towns along the Pacific Coast Highway of California.

In this intensive workshop, we 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. Meeting at various locations in Orange County, California the workshop will consist of a 2- hour keynote pizza dinner, three 3.5-hour work sessions, and a 2- hour sketch crawl conducted over a 3-day period starting Friday evening and ending Sunday afternoon. 

We will start with a Friday evening keynote presentation at the AIA Orange County office with pizza, beer, and wine. Keynote topics will cover perspective, composition, the process of developing a sketch, and approaches to adding 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.

Sketching sessions will start on Saturday morning, at a Mission San Juan Capistrano, with two small groups working simultaneously. Each group will have the opportunity to work with both Frank and Gail. Frank will focus on line drawing as the basis for a sketch, considering the selection of a point of view, and establishing the basic perspective structure for a drawing. Gail will focus on the application of color to the sketch, introducing watercolor and brush techniques and adding value and color to capture the quality of light, enhance the sense of spatial depth, and accent the focal point of your sketch.

  On Sunday, we will apply the approaches you learned on Saturday, with Frank and Gail being available for more one-on-one consultations with workshop participants.  We will first start at Lumberyard Mall or Crystal Cove Cottages at Laguna Beach and then move to the Fun Zone at Balboa Beach.
