"For urban sketchers...each new city is a clean white page."

There is nothing quite like the thrill of heading out on the town, sketchbook in hand, in search of a view worth capturing. Archisketcher will help you embrace the excitement of sketching on location while overcoming common challenges. You'll see that you don't need to be an architect to draw architecture confidently. Nor do you need to understand the intricate details of perspective, design or color theory. This dynamic handbook tells you just what you need to know to create sketches that work well compositionally, provide a sense of depth and scale, and--most importantly--capture the true spirit of place.


Richly illustrated with urban landscapes from around the world--from skyscrapers in Asia, to picturesque English villages, to Mediterranean hill towns

Two-page spreads present various artists' interpretations of Notre Dame, the Brooklyn Bridge and other iconic landmarks

Features ten spotlights on contemporary urban sketchers who discuss the architectural styles and features in their own neighborhoods, from Montreal to Madrid
From architectural portraits to bustling streetscapes to sweeping skylines, the art of urban sketching comes alive on these pages. Whether you aspire to capture the pulse of cities afar or your own hometown, the art and ideas in this book will make your efforts more successful and enjoyable.
