I have a technique for drawing using dry colors: pastels and pencils.

Perspective is not a hard topic, it is actually very simple and nice. Without a good understanding of perspective, one does not have a good spatial imagination as an architect. The passionate learner who will practice well, I will teach them the keys with which, as long as they are enjoying what they are doing, and practicing, they will achieve. Also the learner will learn about principals of choosing proper colors, and minimization of colors use, minimality in art in general. You also learn about architectural analysis, artistic analysis.

Hence, you develop the ability to create a beautiful thing I hope that, whether you are a person interested in arts in general, or an architect, you will find that what you have learnt in this course is something nice and inspiring.
