Ian Fennelly's Sketch Tour of Europe
Welcome to Ian Fennelly's Sketch Tour of Europe! This series of four online workshops was filmed in studio as Ian sketches some of his favourite locations across Europe and shares his sketching process. Watch over Ian's shoulder in real time as he goes from blank page to completed sketch--from siting out the angles and proportions to sketching in the basic outline, splashing in some background colour, calming it down with grey markers, then really going deeper with all the lovely details. Students can sketch along with the reference photo provided.
