Gallery Sketchers – May

Welcome to Gallery Sketchers online – where the Incinerator Gallery comes to you.

Our artist educator Francine Sculli invites you to join along with these creative activities from the comfort of your own home. Please take a photo of your drawings and share them on InstagramFacebook, or our Facebook Group Incinerator Gallery Sketchers.

Use the hashtag #IncineratorGallerySketchers so everyone can share and support each other, just as we do during the program at Incinerator Gallery.

Light and shade

In this short video presentation we explore light and shadow, as we observe everyday objects to closely notice where light and shadows fall. Explore the angle and direction of shadows, to experiment with different ways to capture light, shade and shadow in your drawings to further enhance your art.

These are some of the materials you could use. Be flexible, it is okay if you don’t have the exact items:

  • pastels (Francine uses soft pastels)
  • charcoal (willow and compressed)
  • charcoal pencils
  • Conté crayons
  • eraser or kneadable rubber
  • sketching pencils (variety of grades HB, 2B, 4B and 6B)
  • sheep skin
  • paper stump for blending
