Introduction on Mastering Perspective and Proportions
Mastering the framework to prepare a sketch is the fundamental step to harness our own voice in sketching. Before jetting off to Mexico we break down the visual techniques to tackle this scene with...
Phase 01: Pencil The Visual Framework Extracted Through Layers of Lines
Through a process of elimination, You become the 'Master Puzzle Maker' by extracting the lines of the scene
Phase 02: Ink - Selective Admiration To Create Depth
Layers, Depth, and Focused Details are Delineated
Phase 03: Watercolor - Building A Foundation By Grouping Elements
We "chunk" color elements one by one in order to most effectively create a clean sketch.
Phase 04: Watercolor ~ Bringing It All To Life ~ Sky, Trees, Shade & Shadow
The last steps to enrich your sketch to life. Still keeping true to selective admiration we highlight aspects to tell a story.

With 10 years experience working in the architecture profession and a lifetime obsession in sketching, Alán is your guide to awaken super sketching skills without needing technical know-how or natural talent. He has discovered an intuitive process to sketching from his breakthrough living in Barcelona, Spain. Mastering the ability to sketch was an inner calling, but fears of self doubt and bad habits made it very difficult to pursue.
When push came to shove, no money left, Alán had to take uncomfortable action to teach himself how to sketch in a fast, fluid, and fun way. So he hit the streets of Barcelona to sketch and sell postcards to tourists and locals alike. That was the catalyst that led him to 'SeeTheLines'. By creating an experience for people, in turn a connection and a memory to savor, sketching became a means to create, connect and serve.
After having traveled to 20 countries, it is with utmost joy and passion that, Alán is now in the position to create immersive experiences to join him on his travel sketching journeys. You will see the lines and begin to harness your own unique vision of creating a legacy of sketches.
I really enjoyed this course by Seethelines! I would highly recommend anyone seeking to start or improve their travel/urban sketching, to take part in the course. Alán is not only shares expert knowledge of sketching and watercolour but also inspires to enjoy the whole process from start to finish. It was a great experience following and trying out the process for myself. I'm already a fan of his work but looking out for any more courses by Alán!

Great course breaking up the sketching process in proper phases. I am partial to organized approaches :D Main necessary knowledge for a great start imparted & good practical examples demonstrated. There's everything here for a beginner & some good ideas for a more seasoned sketcher.

Wow, I really enjoyed this class! Alan breaks the material down into steps simple enough for a beginner, but there is plenty of content for an intermediate watercolorist as well. His tips on perspective were especially useful. The scene we painted was quite complex. It included plants and trees, buildings, water and boats. It was fun to paint and very informative. Thanks, Alan! I look forward to enrolling in more of your classes!
