How to Draw a Lantern: a step-by step guide

Here's a winter-themed video you are going to enjoy! 

We have seen so many lanterns on our social media in the last couple of weeks that it seems lanterns are a must-paint subject this time of year. The biggest challenge with lanterns? Getting the shape right.  So we thought we could help you all with that! Once you have the pencil drawing, you can easily paint it and we guarantee it will look great! 

This lesson comes from Brave Brushes Studio, our membership community for amateur artists and urban sketchers. The community helps artists improve their technique, sketch regularly, and meet other artists. The membership includes monthly Adventures (a series of video lessons on a chosen topic for focused practice), a library of resources (all of Julia's courses and workshop recordings), regular live Q&A sessions and live sketching sessions.

IF YOU ARE A BRAVE BRUSHER: you already have this lesson in the library, as well as all the lessons and downloads we will be sharing in our Advent Calendar. You've got our entire collection -- we don't hold anything back! But there is a new video lesson waiting for you in this month's Adventure.

We love you!!! 

December lessons in Brave Brushes are winter-themed: this year it's mostly snowy scenes (with gouache, watercolors and markers). When you sign up, you will also get access to our entire archive of classes.

Happy sketching! And don't forget to share your artwork on Instagram: tag us @bravebrushes and use #bravebrushes_advent and #juliahenze_learnwithme so we can see your projects!
