Voilà une nouvelle acquisition géniale pour ma collection de carnets de croquis. J’étais super content de l’avoir car quelques uns de mes dessins sont inclus dedans.

Urban Sketching: The Complete Guide to Techniques est écrit par Thomas Thorspecken qui est participe aussi au groupe des Urban Sketchers. Il a en plus un blog où il poste ses dessins quotidiennement et vous verrez beaucoup de ses images dans ce livre.

Ce livre traite du croquis en milieu urbain, ou plus largement du croquis à l’extérieur. Il est rempli de beaux croquis, de techniques et de l’avis de plus de 40 contributeurs. Chaque page est pleine d’astuces pratiques et intéressantes, des croquis et de leurs légendes et parfois on trouve la façon de procéder de certains auteurs.

Quand j’ai proposé mes dessins pour ce livre, je n’ai pas ajouté de légendes. J’ai donc été assez surpris de voir des petites analyses accompagner mes dessins, concernant par exemple la perspective, ou autres significations cachées. Quand on dessine on ne pense pas spécialement à ce genre de chose car elles sont très souvent inconscientes. C’est super d’avoir des légendes explicatives sur les principes fondamentaux du dessin à chaque image.

Même si en proposant mes image j’avais droit à un exemplaire gratuit, j’ai quand même acheté un livre à la librairie (le mien n’étant pas encore arrivé en provenance de l’éditeur).

On note que différents éditeurs interviennent selon le lieu de distribution.

People are at the center of urban sketches 9 avril 2014
Par Tina K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I think I can safely say that I’ve read every book in print with the words “urban sketching” in the title or that I know have an urban sketching focus. Although all of them have much to offer on various aspects of drawing on location, some have left me wanting. My personal urban sketching interest leans toward people rather than buildings or urban landscapes. Some books that focus on architecture relegate humans to the general “entourage” (an architectural term for trees, plants and other stuff surrounding a building) of the sketch. Even as I appreciate the information on architectural sketching (goodness knows I need the help), I’m often left wondering, “Is that all people are? Part of the ‘entourage’?”

By contrast, as a regular reader of the blog Analog Artist Digital World, I am dazzled daily by the vibrantly peopled, fully saturated watercolor sketches of Thomas Thorspecken. Compared to most other well-known urban sketchers, Thorspecken’s sketches are unique in that they focus invariably on people and their activities rather than architecture. And the people who populate his sketches are usually not passively sipping coffee or gazing at laptops; they are more often busily dancing, acting or otherwise moving, performing and doing in their community. More than any other urban sketcher whose work I’m familiar with, Thorspecken is interested in documenting the actions of people.

Knowing his sketching style, when I read his book, Urban Sketching: The Complete Guide to Techniques, I was not surprised to hear him emphatically state numerous times that people are – and should be – the center of any urban sketch. “I firmly believe that adding convincing figures to any scene is the most important aspect of any urban sketch,” Thorspecken says. “Remember that no city scene is complete without the human element, so keep an eye open whenever you are sketching buildings to catch people on the street, too.”

With the human focus clearly established early in the book, he spends a significant portion of it showing the reader how to capture the gestures and poses of people we see in urban life. Although nude people are rarely seen in the urban landscape, he strongly advocates attending life drawing sessions to practice sketching the human form quickly. In fact, he encourages sketching not only the nude model but the other life-drawing participants as well, since capturing the entire life drawing session is good practice for composing multiple people in a composition.

“Although an understanding of some anatomy is important, your job is to catch each person’s individual character with as few lines as possible,” Thorspecken says. “You need to pay attention to how people hold themselves – a person’s slumped shoulders or proud stance will say more about them than their facial features.”

The specific techniques he describes for effectively capturing human gestures, stances and movement are invaluable – and rarely discussed in urban sketching books. Thorspecken’s background as a Disney Feature Animation animator becomes clear in this section. In particular, he shows a five-part breakdown of what legs look like when walking, which is probably the single-most-often observed human movement in the urban environment.

The second-strongest point I gathered from the book is related to storytelling. “Your goal shouldn’t be to just draw things, but to convey and imply the underlying story,” he says. By posting daily sketches and blogging about the details surrounding his subjects, Thorspecken himself is not merely documenting a scene; he is acting as a reporter. “When you begin sketching events every day in your city or town, you will become a journalist, reporting on the activity of your community. . . . Your art can inform, enlighten and help bring people together.” Indeed, blogs, Facebook and other social media can be treated as news media available to anyone who wishes to broadcast their sketch stories.

Another major portion of the book is devoted to composition. Instead of simply drawing whatever is in front of us, we are encouraged to shape the composition to tell the strongest story. Thorspecken does not hesitate to move or remove objects, details or people from a composition if they don’t contribute to the story he sees and wants to tell with his sketch.

Throughout the book, Thorspecken includes numerous inspiring examples of his own work and that of many well-known urban sketchers to illustrate the principles he describes.

If you need lessons on drawing convincing architectural perspective, I recommend looking elsewhere. Covering the topics of one-point, two-point, three-point and three-point curved perspective (accompanied by thumbnails of converging lines that are so tiny they are useless) – all in 10 short pages – left me dizzy (although the examples he shows of these types of perspective are fascinating to examine).

Likewise, if putting people into your sketches is not a primary interest, your needs will not be served by this book (Thorspecken’s position on the importance of humans in sketches cannot be ignored or avoided). Fortunately for me, my perspective of the role of people in the urban landscape is generally the same as his, so my conclusion in reading this book is, “Finally – an urban sketching book for me!”

Great compilation of location drawing tips and techniques 16 février 2014
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is another wonderful book added to my collection of sketchbook. I was pretty excited because some of my sketches are included inside.

Urban Sketching: The Complete Guide to Techniques is written by Thomas Thorspecken who's also contributor the the Urban Sketchers group. He happens to have one of those draw-daily blog and you'll see many of his sketches in the book as well.

This book is about urban sketching, or just sketching outdoors. It's filled with beautiful sketches, techniques and insight from more than 40 contributing artists. Every page is packed with interesting and helpful drawing tips, sketches with accompanying captions, and even the drawing process of some artists.

When I submitted my sketches for the book, I did not submit any captions. So I'm rather surprised to see captions analysing my sketches, pointing out things like perspective or other hidden meanings. When people sketch, they don't really think about these concepts because they are already in the subconscious. It's great that the book has captions that explain about the fundamental drawing principles each sketch that was featured.

Even though I submitted works for the book and entitled to a complimentary copy, I still bought one copy at the bookstore (because mine hasn't arrive from the publisher yet).

Note that there are different publishers for the book depending on where it's being distributed. Mine's from publisher Page One (Asia) which has a different cover from publishers Barron's Educational Series and Search Press.

Another book to check out would be James Richards' Freehand Drawing and Discovery. That book also covers urban sketching with tips and techniques from contributors.

Highly recommended to those who like to draw, urban sketching or just want fun book to read about how people sketch.

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

Gorgeous book with great ideas! 11 mars 2014
Par Jane Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Thor's book is a wonderful and welcome new spin on sketching. I was so impressed by his daily blog on life in and around Orlando that I thought it would be good to learn more about his process. For the urban sketching style his marks tend to be very gestural and free. I'm looking to diversify my skillset and have been drawing primarily with architectural pens. I haven't had this book the years that I have worked with The Technical Pen, but it's proving to be a good resources so far!

The content of this book seems really great! However 8 septembre 2014
Par Brenda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The content of this book seems really great! However, the Kindle presentation of it is NOT. A good bit of the book is over a 2-page spread and you cannot, CAN NOT look at it that way! The Kindle App for PC and the app on my Nexus 7 Android tablet only allow a ONE page view. It also will not turn (re-orient) in the apps so you can see better. The zoom function is not that great either in this version. I am not happy about this! I have asked for a refund and will purchase the hard copy version!

Best book on sketching I have ever read! 12 avril 2014
Par meg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the best book on sketching I have ever read, hands down. I picked this up largely because of the beautiful visuals within the book and expected to just thumb through because I was attracted to his painting style. Instead what I have found is that the book is filled with amazing tips about how to become a better artist. Thorspecken takes his years of experience and provides detailed instruction about everything from perspective to value to color to composition and beyond. He provides visuals links back to his work and the work of fellow artists to show examples of how each tip maps to an actual sketch. I have been pouring over this book for weeks now and I'm only halfway through it. I will return to it again and again and again as it is the best book I have seen for anyone who wants to learn the art of sketching on location.
