El material més bàsic per practicar Urban Sketching / Urban Sketching Basic tools / Material básico para practicar Urban Sketching

Molta gent m'ho ha preguntat molts i molts cops: què necessito per començar a dibuixar al carrer? Doncs bé, no hi ha una única resposta. No hi ha un únic material, però des de la meva humil experiència el material mínim i imprescindible seria aquesta llista molt bàsica i també us dono un parell de consells:

Un parell de retoladors calibrats de dos gruixos 0,8 i 0,3. La marca pot ser Unipin.



Una llibreta que estigui bé, jo he utilitzat una CANSON que es prou bona. Tamany DIN-A5, que oberta és tamany DIN-A4.



Una caixa d'aquarel·les. Hi ha una Winsor and Newton de la gama Cotman, de 12 colors, que està prou bé.


Un pinzell amb contenidor d'aigua, Pentel, està bé. Hi han 3 gruixos, compreu el més gruixut o el mig.



Crema solar, barret i una cadireta són bastant obligatòries si voleu no cremar-vos i estar còmodes.








Ens veiem!!!

Talking about pencils

Lately I'm on drawing, more and more, with pencils which are one of my favourites drawing tools. Nevertheless, I always say that pencil gives you a line with a great variety of values which you should control. So once you has got a conscious of line then pencil becomes a lovely companion in your drawing.


After having had some fun with my Palomino Black Wing and my Pitt Oil BASE by Faber-Castell I have found pretty nice features in both of them but also some faults. Anyway, I love both of them.

Pitt Oil doesn't go through one page to another of your sketchbook, something that Palomino does. But Palomino's colour is nicer than the one of Pitt Oil. I have used most of the time Medium hardness but it seems that there are 5 different ones. I bought just three: soft, medium and hard.



Here I have used the the "Polychromos" pencils which are soft and bright, but in words of Faber-Castell they also have got many more features like "unsurpassed lightfast pigments, 120 vibrant colors, break resistant tips, waterproof, non-smudge". My palette is quite narrow I have just 24 different colours but blues are nice as you can see.

Last but not least, it is really important that you do not forget that pencils work better in smooth paper, better than in rough ones, because you do not lose the tip of pencil after a few lines and textures can be controlled better.
