Description

A comprehensive directory of sketching and drawing techniques 
for able and aspiring artists, 5-Minute Sketching: Architecture will help you to dust off your sketchbook and loosen up your creativity in a short amount of time. This bite-sized approach helps make drawing a part of everyday life, making it easy to understand buildings, landmarks and skylines quickly. Don't be intimidated by the prospect of trawling through a technical drawing book, having an elastic amount of time to draw or sketching large and complex buildings! With 5-Minute Sketching it is perfectly possible to produce a great drawing in less than 5 minutes - quick sketches are the perfect way to warm up creatively and to lay the foundation for a more detailed piece.

Every spread in the book features five expert tips and ideas, as well
 as examples of amazing five-minute sketches to inspire anyone short on time. Urban Sketcher and Architect Liz Steel looks first at Chapter 1:How to See, with expert tips and topics for quickly perceiving architectural subjects, such as “Easy measuring” and “Set out the basic structure”. Next comes Chapter 2: Quick on the Draw, with easy expert tips on how to draw specific subjects - such as shop fronts, bridges and churches - swiftly. Next, Chapter 3: Time-Saving Techniques which includes advice on nifty tricks for drawing quickly - such as catching the light and crosshatching for speed - and having fun with mark-making. Finally, dip into Chapter 4: Speedy Supplies, the perfect excuse to buy new, easy-to-use materials such as markers and watercolors and experiment with digital tools. Get set and sketch!
