Full Description

With sketches from around the world, this book takes you on a journey starting with the definition of sketching from observation and an introduction to right-brain drawing. You get a discussion of black and white and colour sketching with a focus on coloured pencil as an easy-to-use medium. Perspective drawing is demystified and you then take side trips to understand shade and shadow, reflections, landscapes, streetscapes, sky and skyline.

This book presents the fundamentals of rapid coloured pencil sketching to ‘capture the moment’ for designers and for travellers who have always wanted to draw the notable places they visit.
