Learn how to depict urban sceneries and buildings with drawings in ink and watercolour in this intense two-day-course. You’ll receive tips and tricks and knowledge on Urban Sketching by Master Danny Hawk himself.

With this Crash Course in Urban Sketching, the participants will learn different techniques which they can apply when sketching outside.
The main part of this course lies on drawing architecture and nature. During the course we will stress the following points:

  • How to mix colours properly?
  • How does one do contrast, textures and shadows in watercolour?
  • How to pick the most interesting part of the picture to draw?
  • How to make difficult scenes “easier” for the eye?
