Urban Landscape Sketching Course

Urban Landscape Sketching is one of the most practical forms of drawing that can be utilised on the go. Urban landscape sketching can be applied in situations like when you are off on a trip and would like to capture the breathtaking scenery in front of you! The main goal is to express the interaction between man-made elements and nature. It is not a hard skill to pick up and is suitable for learners with all levels of experience!

An overview of the basic steps we will be covering in the course to ease you in!

Step 1: The View

Scan the view around you and select what you would like to capture! There are many elements that can be incorporated into your drawing, so it is important to pick a view that you want to focus on!

Step 2: The Composition

Frame your composition – it helps to showcase the harmonic interaction between the different elements of nature and/or man-made architecture. This is a key step to achieving a good work!

Step 3: The Draft

Start light in your draft, as you keep your pen down to focus on your drawing before moving on to the foreground, and background. We would want to keep the focus of the work on the main subject. It is also during this stage that we will apply a one or two point perspective depending on your composition; but also take note of the rule that objects nearer to us are always bigger than those further away from us.

Step 4: The Techniques

Wrap up your final work by expressing and applying the different techniques! Some ways we can go about doing this is through line work, colours and more. Some common mediums that we might use include pencil, pen, watercolour etc.

Capture the essence of your surroundings with these steps: Select a compelling view, frame a harmonious composition, draft with precision, and apply diverse techniques for your masterpiece to unfold.

Why learn Urban Landscape Sketching? How to apply Urban Landscape Sketching?

Urban Landscape Sketching can be applied in everyday life in various ways:
  1. Documenting Your Surroundings: Use urban sketching as a means to document your city or neighbourhood. Simply take your sketchbook with you as you explore and capture the architecture, landmarks, parks, cafes, and other elements that make up the urban fabric of your area.
  2. Travel Sketching: Urban landscape sketching can be a wonderful way to document new experiences and create lasting memories. By sketching the streets, buildings, people, and local scenes that catch your eye, it allows you to observe and connect with the place on a deeper level.
  3. Commute Sketching: If you have a daily commute, whether by bus or train, use that time to sketch the scenes you encounter along the way. It could be the view from the window or interesting landmarks you pass by. It turns your commute into a creative and enjoyable activity.
  4. Journaling and Reflection: Urban landscape sketching can be combined with journaling to create visual diaries of your experiences. Write about your thoughts, feelings, and observations alongside your landscape sketches.
