5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for anyone who likes drawing on location
What an informative and inspiring book! If you like drawing on location, you will love this book. Hundreds of sketches, diverse styles, all ordered by location. And loads of the drawings have detailed information about media used and how long the drawings took, which is fascinating in itself. Would really recommend- a book I will enjoy looking at for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book cheap printing.
I had a good look at this book on Amazon "Look Inside" which was very generous with the amount of pages shown, and was very impressed and inspired with the content.
I could originally only find the book in hardback which sold at approx £27 and this I thought was too expensive.

Clearly aimed at people who are thinking about becoming an Urban Sketcher, or those that have just started drawing outside, this book is a nice collection of examples. Different artists share their work, resulting in a variety of drawing styles.
It's a nice book to have on your shelf if you like drawing and want something less classical.

This review is from: The Art of Urban Sketching: Drawing On Location Around The World (Paperback)
I've unknowingly been an Urban Sketcher for years and only recently found the organisation.
This book is a marvelous insight into the worldwide movement which is as it claims to be "Seeing the world one sketch at a time".
Readers should take their time and apprieciate the individual sketches and if you can regonise anything in your own location even better.
