One of the things that fascinate me in this painting journey is the colours. Working with them can be stressful and overwhelming, but they can be a joy if used correctly. There is no shortcut to finding the colour palettes and combinations that work. Exploring them requires a lot of time and patience. I gave myself time to experiment and play with my palette’s colours.
This was an excellent course to remind me that I can find interesting subjects to sketch in the house as well. In most cases, we just pass by the objects which live with us in our homes, and we don’t really see them, only use them. The challenge of this class was to observe and draw a scene from our surroundings.
I like to take photos, although I’m not a professional photographer. After taking a course about the essentials of urban scene drawing, I thought it might be a fun project to choose some “bad” photos from my gallery and turn them into urban sketches.
I chose this class mainly because I was curious about how the teacher incorporates figures in his drawings. Taking this class, I realised that it’s not that scary, and including some human figures in a sketch tells a story and adds more energy and life to the drawing.
This is a comprehensive course about watercolour, it took me 2 months to finish it. It’s a well-packed class recommended for enthusiastic beginners or experienced artists who wish to step outside their comfort zone. It’s built up gradually, which helped me understand and learn many things about watercolour, drawing, and painting.
