Lighthouses are beacons of light that have been warding sailers from treacherous coasts for centuries. As such they have become popular travel destinations across the world. In this Skillshare class we will explore three different techniques to create these iconic buildings. Using watercolour as a base we will enhance the sketch with:

- pen line ( I use Uniball brown gel pen/ Micron or similar)

- wax resist ( a standard household candle)

- collage ( any coloured paper or tissue paper)

All the video classes are easy to follow and suitable for beginners and more intermediate, with lots of helpful tips to create your lighthouse sketch. There is a fun warm up exercise that will help with the process which I urge everyone to try. Have fun with this class and explore these techniques further if you wish.
