James Richards sketching techniques online!

This just in–many of you know that a large part of my work in recent years has been responding to invitations to provide lectures, demonstrations and workshops to conferences and campuses on my approach and techniques for freehand concept drawing and urban sketching.  As a logical next step, I’ve collaborated with the excellent online learning company Craftsy to distill the key elements of my approach to on-location sketching into a crisp, 1.5-hour course that walks you through where to start, drawing architecture and entourage, creating an illusion of 3 dimensions, working with watercolor, and sketching on-location.  Computer motion graphics clarify concepts and enhance the learning experience.  I think it will be a great learning aid for designers who are interested in upping their sketching skills as a catalyst for creativity.  You can see a preview here:
