The Art of the Quick Sketch
In The Art of the Quick Sketch, Tim Rees takes the viewer through his unique approach to loose and impressionistic charcoal drawing that he developed and began teaching at the Palette and Chisel in Chicago, IL. He first begins with his typical materials, expaining why each is so important. Next, he demonstrates how to make use of short poses, learning how to simplify and capture the structure of the drawing. Then, he leads the viewer through his process in a lectured drawing, explaining in great detail each step of the way. He ends with a final 25-minute drawing, the standard length of the longest pose of the P&C quick sketch sessions, without lecture and with the focus of his normal working method. The original high-resolution footage is no longer available for DVD production, so this slightly lower resolution video is accessible via online streaming.
