This class is for beginners in drawing. When you start to draw by yourself, sometimes a kind of embarrassment appears that can prevent you even from doing the first lines. The essence of it is a short question: what to start with? how to start?
I'll give you some hints about the consequence of the steps in working on a sketch. I’ll tell you about some rules of measurement, composition and schematics. Another important thing, I will teach you how to choose the correct viewpoint to the landscape you will be drawing. All in all, I’ll explain you some rules and I'll show you in practice how to build a nice two-dimensional image from a three-dimensional real landscape.
After this class you'll be able to sketch on your own with clear understanding how to start and how to come to the result you want to achieve.
To practice sketching you can use real city landscape in front of you or a big photo or computer screen. If you use photo or computer screen, please put it in upright position and keep some distance from it to make process similar to sketching on location.
There is no need to depict all the street, one building with some surrounding area is enough. For the first time it will be good to choose the position for sketching with the building facade looking directly at you. Spare the positions with the complicated perspective for next time.
Add your project here to display and to get feedback. In order to make the feedback and discussion more profound, upload as well the photo of the landscape you depicted.
Let's start! I can't wait to see your beautiful sketches!
