I'll first teach you how to control your hand. Then we'll learn how to imagine things. After we cover the basics we will start learning about different kinds of perspectives in sketching. Once we are able to recreate what is in our minds then well start introducing colour to it.
I'll then teach you the principles of painting, different techniques that are involved in creating different effects. Then we will start practicing water colour painting.
By the end of all lessons you'll be able to sketch and paint as you imagine. You'll know how to do pen and ink sketching and watercolour painting, that's my word to you.
I am an Architect, turned Marketer, turned Brand Strategist. I've spent all my life sketching, painting, doing graphic design, writing poems, basically expressing myself in different ways. When I started sketching, I was horrible at it. I still remember my first sketch... It looked so beautiful in my imagination but when I made it on paper... let's just say my hand was not on my side on that occasion. hahaha I know a lot of you feel the same, hence these lessons.
Please have your sketchpads, 2B, 4B, 6B, and 8B pencils ready... and we'd be ready to rumble!
