Urban Sketching workshop

Jenny will show you her way of sketching an urban scene from Frankfurt. As a reference, we'll use a photograph depicting urban structures, with the skyscrapers of the sparkling financial district in the background.
Jenny and the participants will work with Amsterdam Acrylic markers, Ecoline Brush Pens and Sakura Pigma Microns in Talens Art Creations sketchbooks. The design of the sketchbook is especially branded for this occasion. Will you sketch with us?
Mixed Media Lettering
Ingrid Hesselbach (Instagram: @landletterei)
Ingrid will demonstrate how she combines mediums like gouache and fineliners in one lettering artwork. All participants will be creating a small artwork (“Pick up that Pencil”) and learn how to apply these different mediums.
The provided materials for the workshop will be Talens Gouache Extra Fine, Ecoline Brush Pens, Sakura Pigma Micron, Bruynzeel colour pencils and Sakura Koi Mixed Media Paper. Come and letter with us!
Can't wait until the workshop?
Can't wait, or missed a spot? Not to worry. We have plenty more tutorials for you to try out. Check out the blogs below and be inspired!
Have you ever started your work with just some lines, drops or splotches to see where it leads you? Water colour is ideally suited for this kind of technique. It allows you to set your creativity free, let go of your perfectionism and explore the possibilities. Create outside the lines! In this step-by-step plan, Justyna Pennards, our technical advisor, shows you how to freely paint with water colours to create these pretty cherry blossoms. Have fun trying out this technique and achieve a great result that you can be proud of. Let's begin!
Let’s paint an eye together. For this painting I wanted to use as few supplies as possible, so you won’t have to go out and buy something new. You’ll need only 4 colors and I bet you already have them. It’s white, red, yellow and black. The palette that we’ll be using today was created by a famous Swedish artist Anders Zorn. I’ll be using oil paints, but you can also try acrylics or gouache. Your result may vary depending on the saturation of your red and yellow. However, the aim of this lesson is not to create a perfect copy of my painting but to show you how much you can do with only 4 colors.
Ecoline Duotip pens contain concentrated watercolour paint. These brilliant watercolours in combination with the two different nibs give you the freedom to make fine or broad lines and to colour larger areas. You can use them on their own or in combination with water to create beautiful watercolour effects and smooth colour transitions. In this step-by-step plan, Sigrid (@studiosigrid on Instagram) shows us the versatility of the new Ecoline Duotip by creating this colourful turtle illustration!
Traveling can be a great source of inspiration for artists. Whether you’re into urban sketching, painting landscapes, botanical drawings or still life paintings, they’re all great things to do during a trip abroad or in your own country. If you want to travel lightly, however, it’s not always practical to take all of your art supplies with you. That’s why we’ve picked out some handy travel-friendly art supplies that are small enough to take with you in your hand luggage or backpack. Let’s explore the possibilities!
