URBAN SKETCHING: Urban Sketcher Mark Taro Holmes

I have been researching other urban sketchers on website such as “Citizen Sketcher” (https://citizensketcher.com/2015/01/26/book-excerpt-simple-sight-measuring-example)

I found excerpts from Mark Taro Holmes’s book “The Urban Sketcher” The example on the website dealt with a tutorial that Mark illustrates in his book of how to make simple sight measurements to help you correctly represent scale and perspective.

I find that looking at other urban sketchers work and the tips that they give inform me and encourage me to experiment with my own sketching. 


The errors that I make in my sketches are explained by Mark’s book which helps me understand how to improve my sketching and also informs me of other sketchers styles.
