Mayad Allos Art
“Welcome to my website! I am a self-taught artist, with a passion for capturing classical architecture in an illustrative style, with a particular passion for London townhouses, beautiful old buildings with rich details. I find it incredibly satisfying to combine architecture with trees & foliage in a limited colour palette of black, white and green!
I love to share my passion & knowledge of watercolour sketching with students of all ages and levels and devote many hours to online tutorials and in-person masterclasses.
During my Urban Sketching journey I have found many stumbling blocks, in my course I aim for you to bypass these frustrations using the solutions I have found along the way.”
LEARN URBAN SKETCHING WITH ME
In this range of courses I have tried my best to cater for total beginners all the way to intermediate and more advanced level students. The structured learning courses are for those who like to learn step-by-step whilst the other tabs are for people that like to jump straight in and learn to draw an entire piece.
If you're just starting out on your drawing journey, try one of my Urban Sketch courses...
I'm a complete beginner, which course is right for me?
Level 1 of my structured learning course is a skills building exercise and includes all of the key elements to learn Urban Sketching from drawing straight lines to 2 point perspective.
Level 2 is an introduction to watercolour. In this course you'll learn the importance of choosing the right materials and colours and the techniques to create depth and shadows.
I've done the beginners course, where do I go from here?
Why not try one of my intermediate courses, ranging from Foliage to classical Architectural Elements? In these courses we focus on creating beautiful compositions worthy to hang on any wall!
How long do I have access to the courses?
Once you have downloaded a course, you have unlimited access to the course. As I say quite a lot, practice makes perfect!
What materials will I need for the course?
I provide a comprehensive list of materials that I use in each course, this is included in your download.
