Learn to create expressive sketches of buildings and landscapes filled with color and practice drawing by hand.
For many of us, precision is demanded at our workplace. However, when we open a sketchbook, we can throw the rules out the window and create something unbound, accessible, and evocative. This was the thought process of visualization artist Albert Kiefer, who sought freedom from the realism of his daily work and found it in his childhood passion for sketching. He creates energetic architectural drawings filled with color and has built an online presence under Housesketcher.
In this online course, he teaches how to play with perspective and the contrast of light and dark. Learn how to create the foundations of your drawing with black ink before layering it with color and adding the precise details that bring it to life. Discover how to draw inspiration from your surroundings to create your vibrant sketches.
