It could be your home, a landscape, an old car, or a pet. Working from a photo that you provide, we will start with pencil sketches to develop your picture. You will then finalize the picture using ink pens and applying color using watercolors. We will discuss various ink subjects such as pen size, crosshatching and line width selection. We will have discussions on value and hue when working with the watercolors. All skill levels are welcomed. BIO Harold Gans spent his younger years growing up in Havertown, PA where he began his art career drawing tractor-trailers. Studying engineering in college, Gans improved his technical drawing ability and kindled a lasting interest in architectural drawing. His artistry hit full stride during his Army stint stationed in Germany. Some of his work appeared in Stars & Stripes magazine, and many of the pieces on his website,, were inspired by or drawn during his time in Europe. While raising his family, Gans expanded his artistic repertoire from pencil into pen and ink, oil paints and watercolor. After a 50+ year civil engineering career he is now enjoying his retirement. Gans has found that travel inspires his artwork, and he devotes some time every day to one of his works-in-progress, whether it be a commissioned piece or a personal piece. Refund policy Sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances a class must be cancelled. When that happens, we will be happy to credit you for another class or a different session throughout the year. This credit will be good for one (1) year and can be used for any class that has availability and space.
