Urban Sketching is a creative activity that involves making art on location. It allows you to see your neighbourhood with new eyes and experience that heighten sense of awareness you get as a tourist.
In this class, I'll show you the digital techniques to urban sketching by using the Procreate app on an iPad.
The lessons consist of step by step instructions and reference photos are provided.
This course is an intermediate course that assumes you have some basic knowledge to drawing. If you are a beginner, I recommend you check out my other beginner drawing courses first.
This is the first sketch we will draw just to get you familiar with the process.
The second project involves actually heading out on location to look for scenes to draw. I'll talk about what I look for and what catches my attention.
Reference photos are provided.
The brushes I recommend using are default Procreate brushes, namely Tinderbox, Hartz, Clouds and maybe Freycinet.
If you don't mind paying for extra brushes, consider getting the GvW Procreate Brush Set. I may have used some of the brushes from that set in the class.
