Designed to help architects, planners, and landscape architects use freehand sketching to quickly and creatively generate design concepts, Freehand Drawing and Discovery uses an array of cross–disciplinary examples to help readers develop their drawing skills. Taking a "both/and" approach, this book provides step–by–step guidance on drawing tools and techniques and offers practical suggestions on how to use these skills in conjunction with digital tools on real–world projects. Illustrated with nearly 300 full color drawings, the book includes a series of video demonstrations that reinforces the sketching techniques.
Quatrième de couverture
"The things we learn about our environment when we draw on location help us as we imagine, draw, and design the future."
Francis D.K. Ching
While computer–aided design has changed the way designers explore and communicate their visions, freehand drawing remains an essential skill for capturing a flow of visual ideas and developing them on the spot. Freehand Drawing & Discovery takes an updated and practical approach to using hand sketching in a digital world, employing a "both/and" philosophy that shows you how to rapidly capture ideas with hand sketching that can then be further explored and refined using digital tools.
Created by an urban designer and blog correspondent for Urban Sketchers, this resource–rich, user–friendly guide provides step–by–step instruction on drawing tools and techniques. It offers practical suggestions on how to use freehand sketching skills in conjunction with digital tools on real–world projects. Freehand Drawing & Discovery:
- Crosses disciplinary boundaries, from architecture, urban planning, and landscape architecture to the widely diverse Urban Sketching community
- Covers sketching tools and techniques, location sketching, concept sketching, and digital sketching
- Includes nearly 300 full–color drawings, including contributions by Michael Vergason, Kevin Sloan, Christine Ten Eyck, Luis Ruiz, Gabriel Campanario, Liz Steel, Kim Perry, Bob Hopewell, and a special contribution on digital design sketching by Robert Chipman
- Features access to video tutorials in which the author demonstrates techniques for creating sketches from your imagination, on location, sketching on a digital tablet, and painting with watercolors
Freehand Drawing & Discovery is a must–have handbook for students and professionals in urban planning, landscape architecture, and architecture. It is also a rewarding resource for general artists, sketchers, and anyone interested in the Urban Sketching phenomenon.

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.

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.
I bought the book some months ago and read it with enjoyment on the Kindle app on my ipad. One new thought that stayed with me is that all the human figures in a drawing have their eye level on the horizon line. I understood the idea but didn't really believe real life worked that way, it seemed too good to be true. Recently I was on the beach in Florida, the beach is one of the few places you get an unobstructed view of the actual horizon, and sure enough, I could see that the people in front of me had their eye level on the horizon line, no matter how far they were from my observation point. Experimenting with the horizon line in photos inspired me to look up this subject in Richards' text (a benefit of having the ebook-it is with me when I travel). I read the relevant sections in Richards and then proceeded to use his method to draw an ink and water-color pencil sketch of his Fig. 2.30, which is a photo of a cathedral, a pretty challenging subject, which has a lot of people at various distances in the foreground. The text has images of several stages of the development of his drawing of the scene, which are helpful to understand his procedure. In about 3 hours I had an ink and watercolor pencil sketch I was happy with (no doubt Richards could do this in about 20 minutes). [Hey Amazon! If we could upload images to reviews I could post my sketch here!] More importantly, the horizon line idea was really making sense to me and Richards' method for sketching had prove its usefulness for getting a nice sketch of a complicated city landscape.
By the way, this is one book where the potential of the ebook format is realized. Most of the photos and drawings will enlarge to full screen if you double click on them, and you can pinch and zoom-invaluable for sketching from the photos in the book. I've noticed many print art books have the reference photo too small for you to do your own work from them. The video links are really helpful as well. And Richards has a nice encouraging writing style that gives you confidence as you try to follow his suggestions. Overall highly recommended.
This book offers some of the clearest and most straightforward explanations of technique that I have ever come across. It makes an important point, that in this rapidly changing world, it is not the tool, but the artist's vision that matters. Vignettes by fellow sketchers offer additional insight into the creative process, while the final section offers a philosophy and a way of thinking about the relationship between hand drawing and digitalization that clearly shows the synergy between these different methods of expression.
This book is a must have for anyone seeking to understand and refine their own creative process.
PS: The quality of the book is outstanding
