ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE LANDSCAPE: DRAWING A LIGHTHOUSE
This course expands on the BASIC ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE SKETCHING course by providing you with some realism to your sketches. The course will guide you through the process of using a lighthouse photograph to sketch this beautiful scene with a select set of markers. If you are seeking a new challenge, this course is for you.
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR THIS COURSE:
1. 2B Pencil, Ebony pencil or Black Verithin Pencil
2. Marker Paper or Thick 28Ib White Laser Copy Paper – NOTE: Marker paper will not allow for the markers to BLEED through the paper. If you choose to go the copy paper route, be sure to add another sheet underneath so the markers do not stain whatever is underneath your paper.
