With sketches form around the world, this book takes you on a journey starting with the definition of sketching from observation and an introduction to right-brain drawing. You get a discussion of black and white and color sketching with a focus on colored pencil as an easy-to-use medium. Perspective drawing is demystified and you then take side trips to understand shade and shadow, reflections, landscapes, streetscapes, sky and skyline.

This book presents the fundamentals of rapid colored pencil sketching to “capture the moment” for designers and for travelers who have always wanted to draw the notable places they visit.

Jim Lammers was trained as an architect when sketching and perspective were an essential part of the curriculum. A veteran world traveler, persistent writer, and relentless sketcher, Jim has been published in professional journals and on websites.
