The course

Learn the basic rules of perspective and learn to “sight-measure” with your pencil. You will produce a few sketches of some of the buildings in pencil in the morning (outside or the inside of a room if the weather is poor). Then in the afternoon you will be shown how to make various marks to suggest form, tone and texture with pen and colour with watercolour wash.
