A good way to practice sketching and developing your observation drawing skills is to grab a sandwich, your sketchbook and get in an hour of drawing during lunch. Sketching in a city can be very enjoyable as you’ll most likely draw architectural subjects rather than landscapes. The urban environment is filled with interesting subjects at street level - outdoor seating at restaurants, shoppers or people gathering in parks to eat lunch. Pick a spot and start drawing. Don’t forget to look up! There are lots of fabulous architectural details on buildings that are waiting for a trained eye to find and record on paper. Most of all - have fun and make sketching part of your weekly routine now that summer weather is around the corner.
