Sketching the City: Win a free 7-part video course!Posted: November 10, 2015
I am so thrilled to announce my second online course on Craftsy.com. It’s called “Sketching the City in Pen, Ink and Watercolor” and it’s a follow-up to my first course “Sketching Landscapes in Pen, Ink and Watercolor“. It will go live in a few weeks but between now and November 18th I’m giving away the new class for FREE to one lucky winner. Click here to enter: http://www.craftsy.com/ext/ShariBlaukopf_Giveaway
I’m especially thrilled to launch this class because it covers so many topics that I use in my daily sketching: composition; drawing and painting textures on different building surfaces like brick and stone; techniques for painting windows and doors; adding life to your cityscape with people, signage, poles, wires and trees as well as light & shadow. The class ends with me sketching a city panorama on location in Denver.
I`ve really been enjoying interacting with students in my first online class — answering questions, looking at projects and hearing about what people would like to learn. That`s how this class came about — because so many people asked for another class in sketching cityscapes. It was really fun to design it with that in mind. My scenes are the places I love to sketch: Montreal, Brooklyn, Rockport and even Denver, and they reflect the types of scenes you can find where you live too.
When the class goes live in a few weeks I’ll post it here but in the meantime watch to see if you are the lucky winner of the draw. I will post it here in a little over a week’s time.
