Sketching Paris – Sacre Couer which sits on the highest point in the city and can be seen from all over the city. There are a few tweaks coming sooner or later.
Step 1. Lay out pens on your paper at the angles you will draw the buildings.
Step 2. Drawn with a very light Tombow on 140# hot press Fabriano 15×20″. Delicious paper. Sometimes I think it would be easier to start these off with a pencil. Then you can erase the inevitable oopseys.
Step 3. Ink it with a .03 permanent fine liner adding a few more details.
Step 4. Watercolor layer. Only four colors used. Ultramarine, cad red dark, burnt sienna or quin sienna and cobalt teal light.
Step 5. Adding more Tombow and darker tombows including black.
Step 6. Adding more details! Using the permanent fine liners. .03 .02 .01 And a bit more Tombows.
Step 7. And last add a bit more watercolor. And a few more splatters. I do love splattering.
That’s a wrap. The last Sunday Funday with Ian Fennelly. Ian’s been a very busy boy during the pandemic offering a ton of classes in Studio56Boutique.com.
