sunshine on a cloudy day

Welcome to “sunshine on a cloudy day”!

Learn some basic drawing skills by creating an urban sketch from your imagination and colouring it with loose flowing watercolours. Wonky houses are a big love of mine, forget about straight perfect linework, and let you paint splatter and flow outside the lines!  This is what creates charm and character.

The lesson is shown step by step in the video below. Scroll down for the basic supplies list at the bottom of this page.
