Travel Sketching in Mixed Media Video Course

instructorbadge

Travel Sketching in Mixed Media is my second course with Craftsy.com. It’s a fast paced program packed with information about sketching on location.

There are 7 lessons in the 2.5 hour program starting with the basics of sketching in pen, followed by tinting with color, and building towards advanced lessons where I demonstrate sketching directly in watercolor.

Lessons can be done at your own pace, you can start and stop at any time, taking as much time as you like to practice at home and ask me questions with the built in email messaging system. As well, once registered, you can re-visit the class as many times as you like – even years later.

My demonstrations in class are drawn from workshops I’ve taught as part of UrbanSketchers.org as well as all the travelling and drawing I’ve been doing on my blog these last few years. You’ll see me using techniques written about in my book, The Urban Sketcher; Techniques for Seeing and Drawing on Location, and you’ll get the most recent look at where I’ve taken my drawing practice since then.

In the videos you’ll see multiple examples of how I learned to sketch rapidly on location. How to break down a scene into its big shapes, and how to solve common perspective problems you’ll encounter drawing on the street. I emphasize strategies anyone can use to come home from a vacation with a sketchbook full of colorful drawings.
