Nurture your urban sketching skills with artist Amy Stewart (@amystewart) in this art class preview. Amy will demonstrate her ink and watercolour techniques by painting a classic Amsterdam scene.
- Sketching with pencil before ink
- Layering ink and watercolour over the pencil marks
- Using “wonkiness” to your advantage
- Adding black ink for drama and contrast
- Using shadow colours for base layers
Here is the reference image if you want to paint along!
