About This Class

After learning to sketch the basics of using pen and inks (Introduction to Pen and Ink Sketching), we will now learn to draw specific objects. In this lesson we will learn to draw:

1. Tree bark and trees



2. Grass and bushes


3. Stones and rocks


Each of these objects has its own shape and texture. We will learn to sketch each of these objects using various examples, using both pens and India inks.

If you enjoyed this class, these are all of my classes. Do check them out.

I love this guys style. Clear and concise. Would really love to see a long full length detailed course by him.
One of the best drawing tutorials I have ever watched! The design of the video itself is poorly done, which almost made me stop at the introduction part, but I felt really lucky that I continued watching, fortunately. Thanks for sharing so much practical technics!
Shirish's work is on point in every aspect, while the aesthetic he has might not be for everyone, the ink work is superb and worth watching and learning from. I cannot recommend this class (as well as other classes from him) enough.
