New Urban Sketching Art Pack!!
Surprise! A new Urban Sketching Handbook, the the Urban Sketching Art Pack, is coming out in early November!! (And yes, that is my sketch of the Binnehof in Den Haag on the cover, sketched last year sitting next to Marleen Dambrink, Den Haag Urban Sketcher!)
The publisher has taken about 1/4 of each of the previous books in the series and put them into one volume, paired with a sketchbook filled with drawing prompts. Makes a great gift!
"Now in a new format, and including all the core techniques from the best-selling Urban Sketching Handbook series, this portable package includes a 112-page informational book and a 112-page companion sketchpad full of challenges to get you started.
This guide tackles specific challenges of making sketches on location. You’ll find out what to do rain or shine, quickly or slowly, and the most suitable techniques for every situation. Learn how to frame your scene, create a strong composition, and add detail and interest. Find out how to draw figures in motion, in proportion, and how to capture a person's features. Understand the anatomy of a good sketch by learning the secrets to how to draw in perspective. And best of all, learn how to maximize your location drawing opportunities by finding sketch-worthy events, choosing colorful subject matter, and immersing yourself in the sights of sounds of your fascinating city. Drawing the places where you live, work, and play is a great way to show appreciation and creativity. Show your world, one drawing at a time!"
On another note, I'm headed to India shortly for 3+ weeks of sketching! I invite you to please follow my adventures:
