Drawing techniques and perspective will be the initial focus of this workshop, creating an underlying pencil drawing to construct realistic buildings, followed by layers of pen and ink to add tone, texture and detail. We will finish by adding a light watercolour wash to add extra depth to the final picture. Please bring a few photographs of buildings to work from.
