During my recent city break I had a little spare time to indulge in some 'Urban Sketching'.
I followed the process of this great Skillshare Class on Urban Sketching.
1. Pencil Sketch
2. Inking with a fine line and brush pen
3. Water colouring and splattering
I had some great inspiration to choose from, in Porto, Portugal.
Unfortunately my brush pen ran out of ink so the black lines were not as bold and free as I would have liked. I used my very small, old, portable water colour box to set to work on the colours and the fun splatters. As always I think my final results could have been better!
I'd like to do a little more urban sketching, perhaps slightly more local as I am lucky enough to have some great landmarks nearby, however at home I don't seem to have as much time (Or sunshine!) I'd like to develop a more relaxed style and experiment with some more wacky and bright colours.
After a little more urban sketching I can't wait to try these two classes…
