About This Class

Do you love urban sketching, as I do, but you struggle with perspective? Then this class is for you! This is the first part of a series about perspective. In this class we will focus on the fundamentals of the one-point perspective in urban sketching. 

This is a beginners class, so my intention is not to show you one method to draw one particular street, but I want you to understand how to draw your own illustration with one-point perspective in different circumstances. I know that for many of you it’s a quite tough stuff but I’ll try to make it as clear as possible by explaining every detail and by showing different examples. And, of course, we will draw a nice one-point perspective at the end.

Enjoy the class!

Wow, so much information, I've been taking notes. I hope to draw one of my town's streets later using this info. First, my children need food! Julia is very thorough and comprehensive. This is the second class of hers that I have taken the first was the three steps class. The building I drew after that made my husband comment that he couldn't believe I had done it and it "looked like real building". it has really encouraged me in my art and whats more, its fun.
Amazing class, great tips and clear explanations! Loved it Thank you Julia!
