Packed with accessible tutorials and inside tips and advice from contemporary artists, Sketch your World is the ultimate handbook for anyone seeking to explore the exciting creative possibilities afforded by sketching on location, whether in a bustling café , colorful street market, or leafy park.
Combining a winning formula of practical instruction and creative inspiration, Sketch your World examines a range of techniques for capturing great sketches on the go, covering topics such as how to improve observation skills, sketch moving subjects, and create depth and mood in order to convey a sense of atmosphere. Uniquely, the book also includes a variety of techniques for working with digital tools such as tablets and smart pens. Offering engaging advice and featuring the work of some of today’ s most inventive urban artists from all over the world, Sketch your World gives invaluable insight into their inspiration and working processes, while detailed tutorials illustrate a range of techniques for readers to try, examining a variety of drawing and sketching media from pencils to water colors.
With its fresh, highly accessible approach and use of inspirational, hip, and bang up-to-date examples, Sketch your World is guaranteed to appeal to the growing numbers of recreational artists who— permanently armed with sketchpad (or tablet) and pen— thrive on capturing the world around them, wherever they happen to be.
