Paint along with Barry and have fun learning how to sketch and colour four amazing references. Broadcasting live from England. Videos of each class are included in the price.


A great way to produce those quick and vibrant ‘immediate’ sketches that will capture the moment on paper. Barry will be drawing the subject using a Fude pen which can produce both thin and thick lines by manipulating the nib.


Whilst the ink is still wet we can add water with a brush to produce some tonal washes to the scene. Once the ink is dry it becomes waterproof so we can then overlay some quick colour washes to complement the tonal work.


Barry has kept the colours to a minimum as you'll have already established all the tonal areas so you can put down simple colour swatches to enhance the sketches.
