Play with the rules of perspective in this free Live Demo with Stephanie Fowler. Watch and learn while she uses a reference photo from Amsterdam to demonstrate how to play with perspective. She will show how she captures large shapes to make everything else fall into place. Then, she adds ink and a watercolour wash to liven up the sketch!
Check out the reference image here if you want to paint along!

Adding weight to your drawing and how to do that with different pens;
Mixing watercolours that add depth and which colours mix to make a really nice grey;
