Mike will demonstrate his technique of pen & ink drawing and then guide you is the rendering of a simple scene. Sketching/drawing is the basis for all artistic endeavors. If you can draw well, your learning curve to becoming a better artist will be much steeper, than another person who struggles to draw even the simplest objects. You can sketch anywhere, or take a photo and draw at home, but you have to stick with it. I like to draw on my vacations and keep a sketch log of where I have been, and pasting receipts, ticket stubs, etc in the sketch book. I treasure my sketch books more than my pastel paintings.

About Mike Ishikawa    
Mike is an award winning pastellist. Mike's approach is to start with an colorful underpainting as a springboard to a vibrant pastel. An architect by profession, Mike draws on that knowledge for lively urban scenes and nocturnes, but is equally at home creating beautiful landscapes.
