Let's Sketch Backwards Workshop

Learn how paint markers and focussing on big shapes first can transform your sketches.

Learning goals:

• Learn to identify positive or negative space to push your subject forward

• Let go of the pencil and work backwards with blocks of colour, adding detail last

• Explore framing your subject by blocking the negative space with opaque colour in loose strokes

• Become comfortable with the application of opaque markers – (Posca or Molotow or similar)

• Avoid white page fright with tinted pages.
