Drawing what you love makes creating it so much more enjoyable. So if you love architecture, join me for an afternoon and experience the joy of sketching old buildings in pen and ink.
You’ll be provided with a sketching kit, including a sketchbook where I’ll show you how to take your sketching skills beyond expectations from quick impressions to longer detailed studies and even on to fully rendered works for commissions.
I’ll guide you in understanding scale, perspective and composition so you can sketch beautiful impressions of your travels anywhere in the world. I’ll set fun exercises designed to get you to see architecture differently. Drawing using your iPhone. Drawing the shadows not the light. Study how your pen marks can make all the difference. And all without a ruler!
We’ll meet at my favourite sketching spots and I’ll show you how to translate our iconic urban environment into images you’ll be proud to share.
