I love how the designers have packaged the book. (A shout-out to Quarry Books’ art directors and the designers at StudioInk.)
The main six chapters offer my approach to drawing architecture as an urban sketcher — composition is key, but creativity matters too!
Pages include some of my own sketches and examples by more than 40 contributors.
Most tips I share come from “a-ha” moments I’ve experienced while sketching, like how to draw buildings when looking up from the street (top right sketch by me) or down from a window (main sketch by Murray Dewhurst.)
Because I couldn’t do an urban sketching handbook just on drawing buildings, expect the next title in the series to come soon! People and Motion is scheduled for release on Nov. 15. And a third one about reportage and documentary drawing by fellow urban sketcher and Quarry Books author Veronica Lawlor is planned for Fall of 2015.
