Tips and Inspiration for Drawing on Location is the perfect companion for any creative traveler, urban explorer, or budding artist. 50 artists scattered around the globe have been brought together to share tips about their favorite urban settings, including locations in South America, Europe, Canada, Asia, and beyond. Citified sketchers will be guided through techniques for capturing frenetic street scenes as well as the rare moments of peace found in metropolitan centers with the aid of sections that include basic sketching knowledge, architecture and landscape sketching, common tools and materials, and FAQs about landscape sketching. In addition to this practical knowledge, artists profiles featuring samples of their work, descriptions of their methods, advice on composition and proper material use, and philosophical views on the art of urban sketching provide ample encouragement to inspire any artist to take to the streets.

Review:

This guide makes a strong case for urban dwellers and city tourists to draw their environments, positing that the practice sharpens perception and imparts more personal emotion than digital snapshots could. Quick sketches done on the street can lead to more elaborate paintings completed in the studio or stand as works of art in their own right. This book is here to help readers discover the opportunities and challenges inherent in attempting to draw by hand the interactions of architecture, humans, and the urban landscape. The work of 25 artists from cities around the world is showcased, with many fine examples created by each one. The artists' own tips are provided, as are text explanations of techniques and processes. Featured sketches are diagramed and detail views further clarify the processes. Color and architecture are emphasized most in the examples. VERDICTInspiration for any visually creative person, whether they live in a city or only visit. --Library Journal
