Learn to do a complete urban sketch in this art class preview with artist John Harrison (@johnharrison). He’ll show you how to handle the daunting task of figuring out how and where to add colour to a scene. He’ll demonstrate how to draw an entire scene and capture its essence by picking just the right place to add colour. After all, John says it is “line and wash – not just colouring in! 

Topics Covered:

  • What pens to use when drawing with ink
  • Drawing directly with ink and why it’s different than using pencils first
  • How to create one-point perspective drawings, easily
  • How to plan your colour placement
  • ...and a great tip that will help you figure out when you should stop painting

      I’d like to enroll in John Harrison live demo, but his event is not listed on the live demo page. The only place you can find it is in the coming soon section, and the links to enroll don’t work. Further the links on the YouTube page don’t work wither.
