Albert Kiefer is a digital visualization artist who enjoys drawing architecture. He started with traditional tools before switching completely over to making art digital and has in recent years started sketching again with markers.
Expressive Architectural Sketching with Colored Markers is a beginner's course on sketching architecture with markers. The tools you'll need are markers, marker paper or a sketchbook.
This course will teach the basic techniques of sketching, perspective, composition, using colours and adding details.
The instructions are step by step and easy to follow along. There are many useful tips on using markers and sketching.
The final project involves sketching a house in detail starting with sketch, colours and adding textures to make the sketch look lively. The examples look lovely and are inspiring. You can see more sketches from Albert Kiefer on his Instagram page.
This is an insightful and delightful hands-on course for those who want to get into sketching, loves architecture or urban sketching. Just be warned that drawing with markers can involve spending a lot of money because markers are not cheap and each marker is only one colour and you'll probably want a lot of colours.
