    One thought on “Sketching People: An Urban Sketcher's Manual to Drawing Figures and Faces”

    1. I'm a fan of this artist and her work, and I was delighted when this book was published. It shows how the artist captures her subjects, the tools and techniques she uses, and is filled with lots of her drawings. There is almost too much to soak up in my first reading, and this is a book I plan to revisit with watercolor pencils in hand.

    2. This is a fantastic book and I will have to come back to it when I have more time to soak it up--so many helpful tips and examples for sketching people, I honestly cannot imagine a better book, at least not for me!

    3. Great book, pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I may even end up buying a copy so I can refer to it again.

    4. Definitely has some good tips and has helped me find a good basis for Urban Sketching. I love how not just the authors work was featured in the book, she had tons of art done by fellow urban sketchers and it helped to show the different approaches and styles you can take!
