When you’re first discovering a new creative skill, having the proper tools can make it easier to learn. The perfect pencil, of course, can’t make you a pro without hard work and practice, but it will get you on the right path. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to draw architecture in all its detailed glory, we have the shopping list for you and expert instruction to accompany it.
In her online course Architectural Illustration for Everyone: Draw Buildings in Ink and Colored Pencil, artist Demi Lang shares how to draw buildings using her time-tested approach to illustration. She starts with a line drawing, inks over the initial sketch, and finishes it by adding some color. The results are exquisite and highlight all of the lovely details you find in architecture.
To learn how Lang creates her work, you’ll need the following supplies. You’ll start with Strathmore toned paper, a mechanical pencil (or sharp 2B pencil), a ruler, and a set square. You’ll then move on to a black fine liner pen, a white gel pen, and finally, a set of high-quality colored pencils.
So, grab your supplies and settle into Architectural Illustration for Everyone: Draw Buildings in Ink and Colored Pencil. It’s only available through My Modern Met Academy, our e-learning platform that will ignite your creativity. Know someone who would love this class as a gift?
