Artist Launching New Sketching Guide On St Martin’s Today

sue lewington 2014An artist synonymous with St Martin’s images will launch the latest book of her artwork today.

Former resident Sue Lewington’s new collection of sketches goes on sale today at the North Farm gallery on the island.

And Sue says she’s convinced that she can show most people how to sketch if they follow her guidance.

Sue says it’s very much a ‘how to’ book for beginners that she wrote while over just before Christmas.

The book, ‘Sketch Scilly’ tackles the basics of composition and looking at the landscape. And she explains simply how to use line and tone to create images.

Some beginners try to draw everything they can see, but the trick is knowing what to leave out, she says.

Sue has a workshop today between 11am and 5pm, where she says she’ll prove that everyone can draw much better than they think that can.

If you’ve cant get to the gallery today you can attend her sketching walks on St Martin’s tomorrow at 11am or 2pm.
