Workshop: From Sketch to Painting with Vlad Yeliseyev

Join Vlad Yeliseyev for this full, 2-3hr Workshop webinar where you'll learn the importance of your value sketch as you take it from sketch to full painting. Filmed live on 11th March 2021.

This painting will be using the second of two sketches (see below) created by Vlad in his 3hr Value sketching workshop on 21st Jan. You may choose to watch this video in advance, but it is not essential. Scroll down to read attendee testimonials.


During this workshop Vlad will teach you how to adjust your photo for successful composition and how to translate black and white value sketch into the painting. You will learn how to convey looseness of a pencil sketch into watercolour brushstrokes and the final detailing of the watercolour painting.
