This is an intermediate sketching course with pen, ink and watercolour. We'll be sketching a street scene together, and the techniques featured can be used for urban sketching as well.
Since this is an intermediate course, you should have some basic knowledge of drawing and watercolour techniques. If not, do check out my other beginner sketching courses first.
This class will cover one point perspective, simplification, observation and proportional drawing. This class will help you develop the confidence when drawing detailed scenes. I'll also talk about finding your style, and fixing mistakes.
The tools you'll need are pen with waterproof ink, watercolour paper, brush and paint.
The tools and supplies I've used are Sailor fountain pen with Zoom nib, SketchInk, sketchbook with hotpress watercolour paper, Daniel Smith watercolour ground and DS watercolour.

In the first lesson we will talk about how you can find your style. In most cases, it's about letting your style find you. And as your practice more, you will develop your style naturally.
The drawing tutorial is split into two part, starting with an ink sketch followed by painting with watercolour.
After you've completed the class, you can apply the techniques to sketching other scenes, or if you're up to it, sketching on location. I'll probably recommend urban sketching once you feel more confident with drawing and watercolour techniques at home first because sketching on location can be overwhelming for beginners.
