Want to learn how to paint urban scenes that catch your attention? Why not go tiny? 

Join London-based artist Mike Thomas as he walks us through his cup coaster painting process. Using a simplified palette, we will combine gouache, watercolour pencils, and markers to create small urban pieces. At the end of this demo, you will learn how to simplify shapes and use one or two colours to their fullest potential.
