Featured Reviews

The World of Urban Sketching is an excellent showcase of the works of sketchers from all over the world. Many of the artists are familiar to me and I even follow some of them on social media. I could spend hours just poring over the pages - so so much to look at and admire!

Though some tips, special subject focus and short step-by-step artist techniques are presented, this is not quite a how-to instructional book.. It will definitely come in handy when inspiration is needed or when you want to see the possibilities when rendering a certain setting. A terrific title to have if you want to level up your sketches as we can learn by examining and observing.

5 stars from me. A keeper to pull from the shelf to delight in again and again.
