SUMMARY

Join Kasia where she works with two different techniques in one course - pen drawing and watercolour. You will learn sketching a composition using a pen - creating textures of buildings, trees, working with perspective, and hatching. After that, you will learn using watercolour to finish the artwork with colour - using colour temperature and tone to create a sense of depth, making reflection and creating contrast in your paintings. 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.
