SUMMARY

As a prelude to her full 2-3 hour workshop event, join Kasia as she works with two different techniques - pen drawing and watercolour. Kasia will walk you through sketching a composition using pen - creating textures of buildings, trees, working with perspective and hatching. After that, she will introduce watercolour to finish the artwork using colour, temperature and tone to create a sense of depth.


This technique is widely used by urban sketchers around the world. It is perfect for quick sketches on location and capturing your memories of the place on paper.
