| Notes from the Artist |
Sketching in a scene allows us to capture more than we could if we were writing in a journal or taking photographs. When we take photos, we pretty much just snap and go. There’s a much, deeper connection to the environment if we actually take the time to sketch it. While sketching, we have to decide which part of our view is important enough to capture in our artwork. Besides, the details of every single object are being revealed when we try to draw them in our sketchbook.
For me, an urban sketch is always fun! From the beginning of my architectural education, I have always tried to reflect my ideas through sketches, and it has helped me in my design development. I love traveling to different places and most of the time I observe the activities of people, the details of those places and the inherent memories. I believe that every place has its own unique essence and I always try to manifest that essence through my sketches. The layers of urban life, the relationship between indoor-outdoor spaces, the streets, and vehicles, the game of light and shadow always attract me to draw more. As an architect, I’ll say that the practice of sketching is an essential one for the architects because it helps to develop the skill to figure out the true essence of an environment.
