Does your watercolour look flat? Add new levels of depth and dimension to your painting with this colourful and creative workshop!


During this workshop you will learn easy and effective techniques for painting buildings and well as some fail-safe colour mixing tips! We work through lots of mini sketchbook experiments including 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!


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! A house can tell a story of a region or country. Many houses carry their own special story which is why they are such good sketchbook fodder. If you're daunted by what to sketch when you are out and about or traveling then a little house can be a good place to start and works as a great theme for a travel journal or artist's book.


This class is a perfect companion to the Drawing Houses workshop which is available as an live class/instant download. 


Use these techniques to fill a sketchbook just with houses or add to your current sketchbook or journaling practice. I will take you on a special V.I.P tour of my 'housey' sketchbook which I hope will inspire and give you loads of ideas to explore yourself. Everyone welcome, this workshop is suitable for all abilities but especially beginners and improvers.
