Accommodation The complex includes five self-catering houses, completely independent of each other. In front of the houses is a large 25 meters long swimming pool, with large pergolas, a large deck area for sunbathing, offering a fantastic sea and sunset view. Tetrapolis Keos is the ideal place for holiday and relaxation.
Painting sessions take place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and beautiful outdoor locations around the island. This workshop in Kea is designed to give you confidence and enjoy sketching and painting wherever you are, gazing at white Greek village, natural landscapes or the way light is casted in an ancient ruin. Throughout the course we’ll work spontaneously in a variety of themes, where I’ll show you to learn to see the world by drawing, how to compose and structure your drawings and to keep your watercolors fresh and alive.
Each day will start with a short demo and end with a critique, while sitting in a beautiful location, as an ancient theatre or a Mediterranean beach. We will work progressively, from simple to complex scenes, from line to values, from one color to richer color schemes. As part of a small group, you’ll have plenty of individual attention as we work, allowing you to develop at your own pace concepts as composition, perspective, simplifying a scene or capturing the essence of a place. There will be different approaches in each location adapted for beginners or advanced sketchers. We’ll focus on having fun while we sketch, recording as much as we can as we move around town.
The aim is to have you return home with great memories on fat book filled with personal sketches. After this workshop, as you will learn to see Kea through your drawings, I am sure this island will become even more beautiful.
Another drawing exam with my @etsaupv students. This time the Interior design degree students. What is the best way to spend your time while your students are sketching? Sketching with them it’s a good solution, don’t you think? Besides, I think it his always good that your students see you also sketching. Also, now, after sketching it, I know this space by heart and it will be much easier and accurate to grade it! . Slide for the process pics
Do you have any favorite house? This one is one of my favourite for sure! The Fisher House was designed in the 60’s by Louis Khan. Some say Kahn was influenced by the fishermen houses he drew at Amalfi coast in his Grand Tour trip in 1929/30.
It was sooo exciting walking around NYC from Manhattan to Brooklyn and spot my drawings all over the city!! They were randomly popping out on all the (round) 2000 Link NYC screens . Did any of NYC followers spotted them?
