Paul Heaston's Curvilinear Perspective LIVE Online Workshop

Sunday October 24, 1:00EDT (New York time)

In this 3-hour workshop presented LIVE, über sketcher Paul Heaston will explain and demonstrate his process for drawing using his umbrella perspective method. Students will learn how he creates that super cool fish-eye look and can sketch along with the reference photos provided or they can apply the techniques they learn in this workshop to a reference photo of their own. At the end of this workshop students will have completed 2 sketches--an interior view and an exterior view using curvilinear perspective. Workshop participants will be able to ask Paul questions between each stage of the workshop.
