Written by architect and art teacher Klaus Meier-Pauken, an expert in urban sketching, this book teaches the reader to create quick, animated drawings that are full of life and expression. Whether the reader is looking to discover their own sketching style, or to build on existing knowledge, the practical exercises will get them thinking, and the extensive collection of the author’s work will inspire them.

Divided into seven lessons: tools, color, composition, bringing a sketch to life, urban life, landscapes and human subjects, each contains learning objectives and tips to hone technique. Readers can decide how strong or detailed to make linework; when to use pencil or ink; how much color to use, and where; how to successfully compose an image and use perspective to bring it to life; how to use contrast; and how to incorporate detail.

In a time when most people have a camera to hand at all times, the question of why we sketch is ever more relevant. A sketch cannot capture a scene with perfect accuracy – instead, it is about something more. We sketch to capture an impression, record a feeling, create a personal interpretation; sketching is an act of personal expression.
