Lisbon Panoramas: Sketching wide-angle scenes from near and far

COSÌ LONTANO_assim longe


COSÌ VICINO_assim perto


The idea of organizing this workshop, is born from necessity, to share and suggest to the other fans of design, techniques and instructions for creating a panorama. After the experience of the 2nd Symposium Urban Sketchers, I continued to reflect about drawing of panorama, its reason, tools, techniques, the complexity and the choice of view’s point. The drawing of views, panorama has been used since antiquity as a specific work from diferent painters, draughtsmen, architects, researches, photographers, filmmakers, writers, travelers, etc.Theirs works fueling the desire for discovery, exploration, knowledge.

Lisbon is a ideal city to this kind of drawing; its hilly terrain, its skyline, made of high points (miradouri) and lower parts (baixa pombalina) allows you to "embrace with the look and the body" infinite perspectives and views that need to be registered on a sketchbook. I think that this urban panorama is the right subject to deal with the theme of the workshop.

The miradouro Porta do Sol (Workshop title: così lontano_assim longe_so long) is the "open space" where participants will practice the concepts of distance and remoteness, to a direct approach, to 180°, with the large view that they are watching.

The participant will receive the basics of composition and proportion, to set properly on the drawing sheet, notions of perspective, identification of the horizon line and drawing of the skyline. All the tools to make a design brief and quickly, and avoid discouragement caused by the abundance of details and details of the panorama.

Praça Camões (Workshop title: così vicino_assim perto) is the theme in which participants will practice the concept of proximity that "revolves around" 360°.

The participant will receive the basics of composition and proportion, to set properly on the drawing sheet, notions of perspective, detection of vanishing points, the relationship between sky and built urban. All the tools to make a design brief and quickly, and avoid discouragement caused by the abundance of details and details of the panorama.

Welcome to the Urban Sketchers Workshops program



It is with great pleasure that Urban Sketchers launches the USK Workshop Program in an effort to foster educational opportunities for sketching enthusiasts and to support those artists interested in teaching urban sketching. After the success of our international sketching symposiums (Portland 2010 and Lisbon 2011) we aim to bring a little bit of that experience to any city where a qualified instructor can impart a workshop.

Please, feel free to explore the blog; you can learn more about this initiative under the section "About" and if you are interested in becoming an instructor, you may download the forms for submitting a proposal here (or click in the tab "submit a workshop proposal").

We look forward to your submissions!
