Urban Sketchers

Urban Sketchers
Life on the trains reveals a lot about the current situations we find ourselves, living in the 21st century. Observing people and sketching them on public transport is now even more easier than it has ever been. Ask me why? Now, everyone seems to be absorbed into their smart phones and tablets. So, if you are sketching they probably think you are on one of those tablets too! (good reason to start sketching on Public Transport)

Architectural Watercolors by Sunga Park Harrods, London Sunga Park works in South Korea as a mural wallpaper designer. Her architectural watercolors selection features buildings from cities around the world, including London, Paris, Busan, Venice, and Oxford.

Moleksine sketchbooks The Second in Line the Second in Line (from Sanatorium publishing) two books (112pp and 32 pp) One poster and a boxInternational customers ($44 with worldwide shipping) 2013 Drawing, Illustration, Print Design Art Tools of Jorge Royan By some stroke of luck, I got to see some of Jorge Royan's sketches on facebook and knew I had to interview him for the Art Tools and Gears series. He's an architect, photographer and sketcher from Argentina. Man of many talents. His sketches have a strong architectural rendering style with the form mixed with details and nice composition. Gurney Journey: Tiny Landscape Nuts and Bolts This is an answer to the questions from Petr and Vicki from the previous post (by the way, I appreciate all the kind comments, and the haiku, Dan!) Anyway, the tiny landscapes were done with a mixture of watercolor and water-soluble colored pencils. I usually start with a quick lay-in using a brown Caran-d'Ache pencil. The watercolor is a Schmincke half-pan set. Then I painted the sky with a flat watercolor travel brush.

Jenny Saville JENNY SAVILLE The Mothers, 2011 Oil on canvas 106 5/16 x 86 5/8 inches (270 x 220 cm) Jenny Saville was born in Cambridge, England in 1970. In 1990, midway through her BA course at the Glasgow School of Art, Jenny Saville exhibited in Contemporary '90 at the Royal College of Art. In 1992 she completed her degree as well as showing in Edinburgh and in Critics Choice at the Cooling Gallery, London. Following the success of her show at the Saatchi Gallery in 1994, which generated a great deal of publicity for her work (the images were ubiquitous that year), Saville went on to take part in the exhibition American Passion, which toured from the McLellan Gallery, Glasgow, to the Royal College of Art and the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut. By 1994 many people were familiar with Saville's massive paintings, such as Plan, in which a naked woman is seen from below, her body filling the canvas through a combination of physical bulk and extreme foreshortening.

location_drawings "Winter" in Los Angeles is mild and snowless, with many stretches of sunny days. Even so, this year is unusually dry and warm - so it was a relief to have some rain last week. It's been years since I've sketched a rainy scene, so I had to think about how to draw the rain - and settled on using a white gel pen over watercolors. I like visiting the beach in the winter when there are few crowds. The waves were rolling in after the rain. dnewmanpaintings: Sketchbook Envy Painting for the Day: Mountain Blue Bird.

My usual drawing tools You ask me many times about my drawing tools. What kind of pencil do you use? Do you draw with charcoal too?
