Have you always been curious about Urban Sketching - this movement of Art is huge in Australia and across many countries - learn from one of the most recognised urban sketchers and hone your skills! 

Tony has combined two experiences into this one day of Workshops - with an indoor class commencing at 10am in The Old Court House Gallery Cairns, to get you going - understanding the basics of 'Urban Sketching' - some perspective and concepts, as well as advice on how to manage your painting environment when you head outdoors!

Then ....... Head outdoors and experience the amazing twilight around 4pm to about 5.30pm along the Cairns Esplanade to see how to apply what you've picked up from Tony in real time!

  • Please note the information about the Materials you will need below - The actual Paints | Paper and Brushes will be supplied by Winsor and Newton - you will need to bring some tools though .... note below

  • Please not the message from Tony - to bring a fold up chair with a board or folding easel to make things easier for yourself in the second half of this Workshop day as you head out onto the Esplanade!



Painting Materials for this Workshop will be supplied by Winsor & Newton

please note the other items for your setup:

  • In the studio 10am to 2pm we will work on tables, so you need a board and block or a table easel to back your sheet of paper.
  • Usual accessories: masking tape, plastic water container, towel, plastic palette.

Outside - ‘Twilight on The Esplanade’ sketch 4pm to 5.30 -

  • There probably won’t be tables so you will need a suitable standing easel or
  • the ability to work on a board on your lap sitting on your own folding chair.
  • You will need to bring the art materials supplied from Winsor & Newton in the morning with you ++ any of your own kit for the evening - Plein Air Painting!
