I took a photo of this house when I went for a walk today. In this Painting House Portraits Workshop, I go through essential tips on drawing and painting a house portrait. Thought I’d try sketching it live. Check out the video here: Bonus Live Demonstration: House Portrait
Hope you like this demonstration. I also go through an unboxing of some supplies I received from Etchr. They have provided members a coupon which you can enter on their website to get 10% off all supplies (WB10OFF).
I was walking along a street and snapped a photo of this interesting-looking house. A quick photograph can turn into a piece of original art. Keep that camera handy just in case!

Incorporating negative painting is crucial to creating some of these shapes.
