That’s the name of the course I’m currently taking.
I never really thought of pursuing my hobby in drawing in a more serious sense. I used to think that I can just be content with what I have now.
But a chat with a coach changed my mind. We chatted “the life after Automattic”, and I realized that I didn’t have something that I actually really proud of. I know I can draw, but do I know how to draw?
I then thought about activities I can do, and one of them is taking online courses. I always thought that online courses will take weeks with intensive lessons, until I checked Domestika and decided to see what’s up.
I stumbled on the course “Expressive Architecture Sketching with Colored Marker” with Albert Kiefer (his Instagram account is “housesketcher”) and I decided to give it a try.
Urban sketching has been a thing that I wanted to be good at, but no matter how I tried, I always felt that disappointed pang whenever I see the results.
Throughout the lessons, Albert keeps focusing on one thing: The courage to just… do. Just pull a line, who cares whether it’s wonky or straight. Just make the first floor smaller, it’s cute. Imagine a story, perhaps these two buildings are fighting with each other.
This is not a sponsored post and I don’t receive anything neither from Domestika or Albert. I simply love the courses and Albert is awesome and a terrific teacher. If you would like to give it a try, feel free to check it out here: Expressive Architecture Sketching with Colored Marker
