CAPTURE THE ENERGY! Jim's online sketching class is live!



ALRIGHT! MY ONLINE SKETCHING COURSE IS NOW LIVE!! Over many years and 45 countries across the globe, I've developed a philosophy and approach to on-location sketching that goes beyond "rendering" to capture the energy and spirit of the place.  I'm very happy that the most important of these techniques are captured beautifully in this 2-hour Craftsy class. The link below will get you $10.00 off the purchase price of the class, as a way of saying "thank you" for your interest. You have access to the class forever, and can interact with me online with questions and comments.

I can't tell you how excited I am about these videos. The Craftsy team are top-shelf creative professionals, and they've done an inspired job of capturing and crystallizing my sketching approach into a crisp set of lessons that flow logically and beautifully. I hope you're excited. I'M excited! Let's do this!

    1. Hi Lorne...this new course is focused on urban sketching on location, and especially ideas about how to capture the "buzz" of a place, and has many new ideas, tricks and techniques. It makes very creative use of film footage in the field and computer motion graphics to teach ideas about depth and movement very clearly. Several of my university students who have my book and have taken my semester-long course tell me that they've learned more from the Craftsy course than from the other two.
