Draw and Paint a Summery Scene
What you will get from taking this workshop:
- Combine gouache with drawing to create depth and texture
- Create a unique and expressive piece of art depicting your favourite summery place
- Elephant Academy takeaway technique: Create a sense of place through colour and fun details
Create a unique illustrated scene based on your favourite holiday, dream destination or favourite local spot. In this workshop you’ll first sketch and plan your drawing, choosing details that help capture a sense of place. You’ll then create a cohesive colour palette, and finally layer materials to create a beautiful outcome using gouache and pencil. We’ll also talk about how to gather great reference images, and tips for drawing from location so you can feel confident drawing out and about after the class.
