This is a delightful book! I adored The Art of Urban Sketching by Gabriel Campanario. One sentence review: If you like to wander around the world sketching, this book will take you far away without leaving home.
Sketching outdoors is so fun – to feel part of the pulse of a city as well as its observer. To enjoy overhearing people’s conversations. To sit and scrutinize the buildings around us. So rarely do we stop to absorb the beauty and wonder of what’s around us.
It’s also rare to enjoy a piece of art you’ve made. There’s always that critical voice, pecking away at our satisfaction. So I was particularly thrilled to love the sketch I did of this, one of my favorite buildings in Denver.
