Artist and instructor Steven Reddy shows you how to sketch what you see by heading to your favorite local cafe, choosing a subject and drawing it in a playful yet realistic way. You'll walk away from this online class with versatile techniques, and a sketchbook full of impressive work to share with friends and family.
Meet Steven Reddy and get started by drawing inspiration from Steven's personal sketchbooks. Then, explore playfulness and realism, and learn how to achieve both in your drawings. Plus, find out how to select a subject at your favorite local cafe.
Work along with Steven as he delineates the foreground, middleground and background of his sketch with very loose pencil lines to ensure that the finished product effectively communicates space.
Steven shares his approach to contouring, starting with objects in the foreground of the cafe to establish scale. Then, work through the middle and background of your scene to fill in the page. Along the way, you'll also learn editing strategies to portray your subject from your unique point of view.
