Capture the energy and excitement of travel in spontaneous sketches. Learn fast, fun and flexible techniques for sketching on location in mixed media.
Learn urban sketching techniques for pen, ink and watercolor with guidance from pro artist Marc Taro Holmes. In your first lesson, find out how to create a quick single-line sketch of your surroundings before adding darks to create contrast and dimension. Switch to a brush pen as Marc teaches you how to draw like a painter by working with tone and shape instead of in line. Next, get tips for using your sketchbook to tell a compelling visual story. Take your travel sketching skills even further as Marc teaches you three strategies for making perspective sketches painless. Then, build watercolor skills for capturing shapes, making your focal points pop and bringing spectacular detail to your work. You'll even learn layering and finishing techniques for completing sophisticated watercolors.
