Win a free 7-part video lesson on “Sketching Landscapes in Pen, Ink and Watercolor”Posted: May 27, 2015
Just in time for summer sketching season, I’m excited to announce my first online video class in conjunction with the website Craftsy.com. “Sketching Landscapes in Pen, Ink and Watercolor” will be out in a couple of weeks but in the meantime I’m giving away my new class for FREE to one lucky winner who will be announced when the class launches.

The class covers so many techniques that I talk about daily on my blog. We start with a look through my sketchbooks, and then we go outdoors to the Flatirons in Boulder, Colorado to work on composition and value sketches. Back in studio we look at different ways of painting skies, and then move through all the stages of the sketch — from drawing with pen and ink to painting the big shapes and then adding texture and darks. The final lesson is about making your sketch unique and using a limited palette to evoke mood. I’ve often been asked if I have any instructional videos, so it’s exciting to finally be able to share this.
When the class launches I’ll post it here, but in the meantime good luck in the draw!
