A classical music live performance and a few neocolor!

  • Mar 29.

Final Friday night I went to a live performance on the Sydney Conservatorium of Music – it’s been years since I’ve been to a live performance like this! I made a decision beforehand that I wasn’t going to try to sketch continuous (as I’ve completed previously) as a result of I actually simply wished to give attention to watching the efficiency in order that I’d have a greater appreciation for the items. Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2 and Beethoven Symphony No. 5.

Nonetheless, I did arrive early and managed to do a fast 15-minute sketch of ‘The Con’ earlier than my music-loving companion arrived. It was good to do one other constructing sketch designed by Francis Greenway – this was initially the stables for Authorities Home designed for Governor Macquarie.

As soon as seated I received out just a few instruments (colored pencils, markers and my Fude) considering that I would sketch through the third piece within the live performance composed by Julia Vlahogiannis – a scholar of The Con. However I used to be impatient for the music to start out and did this enjoyable line and form sketch through the Chancellor’s speech. As soon as Brahms PC2 began I used to be completely targeted on the pianist and the orchestra.

I did just a few fast sketches throughout Julia’s piece which I loved very a lot. I used to be excited about easy methods to categorical the music with my marks relatively than attempting to ‘draw folks’.

After which earlier than Beethoven S5 began I put my sketching instruments away! As my notes on the web page say, I’m not an excellent fan of Symphony 5 (choose 3, 6 and 9) however I completely liked seeing it carried out dwell. So dramatic and enjoyable to observe the music!

Due to all of the performers for an important live performance!

Earlier that night, I sketched whereas ready for my dinner (as described beforehand right here)…

…and earlier than that I went to Parker’s Artwork to get just a few Neocolor I.  (Wax crayons by Caran d’Ache)

I’ve a set of Neocolor II (the water-soluble model) and I’ve been enjoying with them on a private mission however that is the primary severe time doing a sketch with them. I began with just a few shapes and contours, then added watercolour (having no concept precisely what would occur) then added some colored pencils and allowed the sketch to evolve spontaneously. That is undoubtedly my favorite strategy to work and I completely love extending the sketch outwards and including color intuitively!

BTW there’s a little Neocolor I in The Con sketch above.

I’m undecided precisely how I’m going to make use of these new instruments however I like seeing Suhita’s use of them and quite a few you could have requested me if I’ve tried them. So that is one other ‘keep tuned for extra’ kind of article! If you happen to haven’t already seen, I’m in a really experimental temper in the meanwhile and having an absolute ball!

If you happen to do use Neocolor I or II I’d love to listen to from you within the remark part beneath – how do you utilize them? Why do you want utilizing them?
