Architecture Sketching with Ink and Watercolor

07.03.2021 So, 14:00 - 20:30 Live-Online Kurs Danny Hawk Aquarell, Skizzieren 99 EUR

Learn how to draw architecture with ink and watercolor! Danny Hawk will show you how to create exciting textures and effects and will explain practical watercolor techniques.

In this live online course, we will focus on the topics of light, contrast and depth and learn how to create these effects in architecture sketches using ink and watercolor. We will focus on different textures and use a wet-on-dry painting technique to make our watercolor sketches look vivid and three dimensional.

Through various exercises, we will learn which parts of a building to pay special attention to in order to give our sketches more contrast and depth, and how to classify shadows and light into different tonal values.

Target group: This online course is geared towards beginners with previous experience and advanced students who are interested in learning new techniques.
