Freehand Drawing and Discovery est un livre sur le croquis. Ecrit par James Richards, membre d’Urban Sketchers, c’est une collection d’astuces et d’informations sur le croquis.

Les astuces sont pratiques et accompagnées de très beaux exemples de l’auteur et d’artistes invités. On trouve des informations sur la création de textures, le dessin de formes simples en perspective,les différentes choses à ajouter pour aboutir un dessin, etc.

Ce n’est pas vraiment un livre pour les débutants, il faudra avoir acquis les bases du dessin à l’avance. C’est plutôt un supplément pour améliorer votre sens de l’observation et la compréhension des scènes.

Parmi les artistes invités certains sont interviewés, dont Michael Vergason, Kevin Sloan, Luis Ruiz, Gabriel Campanario, Liz Steel entre autres. Ils racontent leurs histoires, leur expérience et on comprend facilement pourquoi ils sont fascinés par le dessin, c’est très inspirant.

Les derniers chapitres couvrent des méthodes plus expérimentales comme l’utilisation de Google Sketchup 3D comme référence et le dessin par-dessus des photos.

Le livre inclus également l’accès à plus d’une heure de tutorial vidéo en ligne très intéressant.

C’est un livre inspirant. Fortement recommandé à tous ceux qui aiment dessiner.

What a gem of a book 1 février 2013
Par Suzanne M. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As someone who's always on the lookout for beautiful art books, I immediately responded to James Richard's book: Freehand Drawing & Discovery/Urban Sketching and Concept Drawing for Designers. It will definitely become one of my treasured art books in my personal library, and it's a book I know I'll return to again and again.

James' loose, confident, artistic style has long been a favorite of mine, and his book is just chock-full of beautiful sketches, insights into his methodology, drawing tips and lessons, and wonderful visual examples of his processes. Whether he's describing how to simplify complicated images before him, how to figure out vantage points and perspective, how to include figures in scenes, or how to create a sense of depth in landscapes, his examples are insightful and clear.

He also generously shares his pages with other artists who share his passion for sketching in the moment, and their beautiful images grace his pages while these artists also describe their creative processes. It's exciting to see that the artistic community is alive and well and living, as evidenced by the work displayed within these pages.

James also touches upon proficiency in design concept sketching as a springboard for merging freehand skills with digital representation technology.

As he says so well himself, "drawing offers a rewarding way of seeing and understanding the world." This book inspires and makes you want to pick up a pen, pencil and/or brush and have at it! Finally, the book even has instructions for accessing online tutorial videos! It's a wonderful reference book for anyone interested in art, or for those exploring their own creativity.

Inspiring book on sketching 4 mars 2013
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Freehand Drawing and Discovery is a book on sketching. Written by James Richards, a member of Urban Sketchers, the book is a collection of tips and insight on sketching.

The tips are practical and accompanied by many beautiful examples from the author and other guest artists. There are info on creating textures, drawing simple figures in perspective, understanding what can be added to make a good picture, etc.

It's not a totally hands-on tutorial book so you'll need to know how to draw first at a basic level. The book is more like a supplement to help you improve your observation and understanding of the scene.

There are various guest artists interviews with Michael Vergason, Kevin Sloan, Luis Ruiz, Gabriel Campanario, Liz Steel and others. They share their stories and experiences and you can understand easily why they are thrilled by sketching, and be inspired by them.

The latter chapters cover more experimental sketching, like using the Google Sketchup 3D software for reference, and sketching over photographs.

The book also includes more than an hour of helpful online tutorial videos.

It's an inspiring book. Highly recommended to everyone who sketches.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Perfect intermediate resource for architectural field drawing 2 mars 2013
Par Dan Bergevin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Freehand Drawing and Discovery fills a large and frustrating gap in the information market by making the leap from field doodling to full scale, full color field art and design. The techniques range from rapid capture of visual information and ideas, staging scenes, using sketches to create designs, use of scaling and perspective, all the way to the types of equipment available and tips on their usage. I feel a bit overwhelmed by it all - before I got this book I was starving for this information and now I'm at a buffet.

My recommendation is for anyone interested in field rendering to start with something basic like Lasaeu's Freehand Sketching, then graduate to this book. The benefit to this is you will feel less intimidated by the author's clean, beautiful work once you have a better understanding of how to make your sketching style meet your needs. Laseau's Visual Notes for Architects and Designers is another book I would strongly recommend for anyone interested in field work, as it covers the topic of maintaining notebooks and using sketches as a method of design reconnaissance rather than an end in itself.

In sum, this book is not going to teach you how to sketch, but it will allow you to use your sketching abilities to better explore your surroundings and capture ideas and information. It also won't teach you how to create precise schematics, but you can always use a CAD tool to clean up and formalize a field drawing. On the other hand it is far harder to use a CAD tool to capture ideas in the wild, which is most often where inspiration strikes and where you are face to face with live, visual input.

Anyone looking to expand their field of vision, generate more and better ideas, or gain a greater appreciation for their surroundings will benefit highly from this book.

Thorough and helpful treatment of freehand sketching. 28 février 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This book covers sketching for just about everybody who wants to get better at it or those who would like to see different approaches. It has examples of urban sketching, architectural sketching, urban planning and landscape architecture drawing. Lots of good examples both of the author's artwork and also a number of successful sketchers. There is also excellent instruction on drawing people, vehicles, and other scene elements, such as trees, mountains, water, roads and of course buildings.

Plenty of step-by-step instructions on how to build a sketch by starting with basic geometric forms and then adding refinements and details. Pen and ink work is covered in detail too. And there is a chapter that covers digital sketching and how best to integrate it with traditional by-hand work.

Currently it's inspiring me to work on my people and vehicle drawing skills.

I think that anyone who sketches can benefit from this book, from the casual weekend sketcher to the serious architect looking for inspiration, as well as the fine artist.

A beautiful book that is a delight to read and browse, with nearly 300 full color drawings.

This is in addition to my review above. Today (4/22/2013) I got around to checking out the included link to the author's brief online video clips on some several of the basic techniques he uses when sketching (the link with a password are in a plastic envelope inside the back cover). These are well-done quick studies on some of the key points the author makes in the text and that really bring his instructions to life. I like them for a quick review of what I need to remember when out sketching. They can also be a convenient way to preview some of the book's content. And these clips of course add to the value of the book.

Highly recommended.

Inspiring - Inspiring - Inspiring! For Designers and Amateur Sketchers Alike 24 mars 2013
Par ChristineMM - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I am an amateur artist who enjoys sketching and drawing and art journaling. I am not an expert or professional artist or designer, and do not pretend to be.

This book is in the category of nonfiction books which are published for professionals in a career field but which contain a lot of useful information and inspiration for amateurs as well. By this I mean, if you are an architect or designer and can use 100% of the content of this book, that's great for you, but amateurs may also read the book and get a lot out of it while not needing a certain portion of the book. That is okay with me; some amateurs (like me) would rather have information overkill and get the good from the book than to never have benefited from reading it. (Last week I came across the same exact situation for organic gardeners where the title and some of the content was geared toward professional landscapers but where 90% of the info can inform and be used by the home gardener. The authors were begging home gardeners to not shy away from the book because the word professional was in the subtitle.)

Richards is of the generation who learned to draw by hand first, and then later the digital revolution came along and he learned how to use computer software to combine the two in his architectural work. The current generation of designers is said to have been taught to go directly to digital rendering. Richards and other professionals highlighted in the book argue that freehand drawing makes designers better designers for multiple reasons. The biggest argument is that sketching by hand as a tactile experience opens up creativity. The power of observation that is honed by sketching regularly, perhaps a small sketch a day, helps train the eye of the artist/designer. One may not know in the moment that the fun sketching that is done is making them a better artist and a more innovative designer, but it is, Richard insists. This is not unlike recommending that writers practice writing (anything) every day to become better writers or saying that photographers should take a ton of (mostly bad) photos to sharpen their powers of observation, to really learn to see, and to improve composition skills.

There are eight chapters and the book circles back at the end to the main point made in the first chapter.

Part One has four chapters that introduce freehand drawing. It starts with an argument and a defense for the good that comes from old fashioned hand drawing to opening up creativity and to sharpen the skills of the artist/designer. Chapter two focuses on simplifying tools and diving in, because doing more with less is better than getting bogged down with too much equipment that is not regularly used. It includes recommendations as to how to sketch a scene on site. Chapter three has sketching tips about how to represent the various items in the landscape (rocks, sky, buildings). Chapter four focuses on perspective, depth, and use of color.

Part Two focuses on urban sketching. Since this is a book for designers of suburban or urban structures, this book focuses on urban spaces (not nature landscapes). In this section the concept of urban sketching is discussed and methods for working to do fast sketches on site are shared. Sketching done in one's private time enhances the professional's work done while on the job. Drawing is play and should not be confined to 9 to 5.

Part Three is the technical part of the book for professional designers. Chapter seven discusses sketching over digital photo bases and options for doing that with various software and computers. Chapter eight is about using a tablet to sketch onto (vs. drawing paper or layers of tracing paper which are later scanned and combined). Chapter nine rounds back to inspiration and creativity urging the artist to collect inspirational pieces to refer to and to draw regularly, as well as how to keep the creative mojo going.

Now for the visual treat: the eye candy: the drawings. I love the large format of this book, it is about 9 x 11 inches in size which provides a large canvas to display the full color sketches and color photographs which are throughout. There are hundreds of sketches here which are inspiring in and of themselves. Most of the sketches are by the author but other designers have shared their sketches and design plans as well (it is nice to see the variety). Some are full page or two on a page, and there are two page spreads. We see the progression of planning from start to finish, because Richards draws on tracing paper which he overlays, then makes a scan and prints a final copy to color for his presentations.

The quality of the paper in this book is also excellent, thick and wonderful. It is hardcover and very sturdy. Although I enjoy eBooks this is the type of book that you want to hold in your hand and view in full size with two page spreads.

Highly recommended for the passionate amateur drawing or sketching artist as well as for professional designers who want to be inspired and who are open to the idea of combining freehand drawing with computer software.

I rate this book 5 stars = I Love It.
