Learn to create exciting urban sketches in this workshop preview with artist Lee Bates (@leetheillustrator). He will use dip pens and watercolours to bring urban scenes to life! You’ll see how to create whimsical drawings while staying true to a location by playing with scale and carefully selecting what to include (and, more importantly, what to leave out!). Watch how he designs a drawing and creates balance within a composition while embracing mistakes that may come naturally.

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding the drawing process
  • Designing a drawing
  • Using white space in the composition
  • Adding personality and character to ordinary situations
