Description

The Urban Sketching Art Pack is a portable package that includes an informational book and companion sketchpad filled with prompts for sketching on the go.

The Urban Sketching Handbook series is now in a new format! This portable version of the art package includes a 112-page informational book and a 112-page companion sketchpad full of challenges to get you started on sketching urban environments.

The Urban Sketching Art Pack tackles the specific challenges of making sketches on location. You’ll find out the best ways to sketch rain or shine, quickly or slowly. 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. As you advance through the lessons, you'll come to understand the anatomy of a good sketch by learning the secrets to how to draw in perspective.

Best of all, you'll learn how to maximize your location drawing opportunities by developing your eye for sketch-worthy events and learning to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of your fascinating city.
