How To Draw Buildings In Pen & Ink

The Course

Learn the basic rules of perspective and sight-measure with your pencil. In the morning you’ll produce a few sketches of buildings in pencil (outside or the inside 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.
