In the final workshop in the spring French Village Sketchbook series we'll sketch a classic local apéritif and a view of the village square.
These tutorials are a great way to challenge your observational skills and develop your drawing technique. We will practice ellipses, work with watercolour and sketch a complex composition in a series of basic steps. I may also be talking about 'absinthe' - so you can even sketch some imaginary people too 😉
Previous sketching experience could be useful but is not essential. With photos and guides we will work through every stage of these sketches one section at a time. I recommend using a simple sketch kit - the items I am using include
I also use a spare piece of scrap paper and a small spray water bottle.
