Teaching to Observe - Albrecht in Bavaria

Derwent Graphitint
Last month Albrecht was busy teaching in Majorca .  This month he's been teaching in Bavaria.  I'm the lucky recipient of a card he drew when he and his students were at lake near Bad Reichenhall, not far from the Austrian border and the city of Salzburg.  It's one of his students in the shade overlooking the lake  -  clearly engrossed in his own sketching!

You can see more images from this course on Albrecht's blog  here  Some great photos of his students drawing mountains and various other studies.  There's a very impressive standard of draughtsmanship amongst them.  It's definitely inspiring to see the kind of detailed observational drawing Albrecht teaches. 

Albrecht has a book coming out later in the year.  I am hoping we will be able to obtain copies over here in England!

This is one of those postcards that really make you wish you were there! I mean there in Albrecht's class. And thanks, Alison, for the link to the terrific drawings and photos on his blog.

I agree - he must be an inspiring teacher and his draughtsmanship never fails to enthrall

Exciting to see cards from new and different locations - a beautiful drawing - I agree, would love to have been in that class!

My goodness, the quality of the 'student' work in Albrecht's class is extraordinary. Truly a Master Class.
This beautiful postcard has filled me with anticipation as to what I might be lucky enough to receive from Albrecht this year.

I do love sketches by artists of other artists working in the field - you get the sense of being there. Although I have to say Albrecht's blog does a magnificent job of highlighting what one of his courses is like.

I enjoy the peacefulness of this image. I wish I were sitting right her sketching, too.
