*NEW* If you can master buildings in your artwork, you open up a rich source of subject to draw upon. Start off with a valuable and simple refresher on drawing and perspective, then put it into practice with some genuinely worthwhile watercolour exercises. You will have the time to work from image(s) of your choice to develop your picture(s) with patient guidance, so they can work well visually.
