Break up with your ruler in this art class preview with artist Stephanie Fowler (@designbystlight). Watch her demonstrate how to play with perspective without being married to the rules. She’ll show us how to capture large shapes first, which makes everything else fall into place.

Topics Covered:

  • Sketching with hard pencils
  • Using perspective loosely and not being afraid to be imperfect;
  • Adding weight to your drawing with different pens
  • Mixing watercolours for depth
  • Adding a space of colour in various places for texture and interest
  • Being a left-handed artist in a right-handed world

Here is the reference image if you want to paint along!

In the Mini Workshop art class, Stephanie will teach:

  • Using variation in line art
  • Properly positioning shadows
  • Painting shadows to add depth
  • Remembering to paint reflections on reflective surfaces
  • Creating a cohesive colour palette.
