Super-quick techniques for amazing drawings by Liz Steel

Great drawings in just five minutes! Perfect for beginners.

Professional architect and urban sketcher Liz Steel provides expert tips and inspiring sketches to help you learn to ‘read’ buildings and capture them on paper. Relish the challenge of recording urban spaces from the domestic to the majestic in just five minutes!

This book can help artists of all abilities, especially novices, to understand and reproduce real-life perspective in their drawings. The rules of perspective will become instinctive and the artist can focus on the creative: decorative forms, the setting, the mood, the people, and the activity that gives life to architecture.

Featuring a comprehensive collection of expert tips, ideas and inspirational examples of amazing 5-minute sketches of architecture, the bite-sized approach of this book shows how little time is needed to make drawing a part of everyday life. It is an ideal introduction to a rewarding pastime and a new source of inspiration for experienced and lapsed sketchers.
