- Downloadable references
- Loads of friendly advice and support!
Materials and Information:
Houses are a great source of inspiration for many artists because of their huge variety of shape, colour, detail and architectural history. They are particularly useful as a sketching and painting model because they stay still!
During this class you will learn about colour mixing AND the layering of paint to create form, depth and texture to your house illustration. There is also the option of adding additional mixed media details for an added colour pop!
This class is a perfect companion to the Drawing Houses workshop which is available as an live class/instant download.
Materials required for this class:
- Pencil 2B or softer
- Eraser, Pencil sharpener
- A sketchbook or heavyweight A4 cartridge paper or smooth watercolour paper
- A waterproof fine liner pen (approx nib size 0.3mm)
