Sketchy-Saturday

Sketchy Saturday is always one of our weekly highlights as we get to see how you see the world, and how you are using that perception to explore and discover your environment and your drawing talent. This week we featured some incredibly captivating sketches from the classical styles to the more surreal images of the imagination, showing that not all the landscapes we explore are physical,the most interesting of all may not only begin in the mind, but also reside there, until you are brave enough to put pen to paper and make it manifest. 10. Patrick O’Keeffe

Patrick created an incredibly isolated experience, that is full of planting, people and energy, the artist really captured the movement of the space by accentuating the slope however with the lush semi mature trees, one may be drawn to find seclusion there and rest, creating an outside space that merges the worlds of movement and stillness. 9.Laura Ruccolo, landscape architect,France

“Rio de Janeiro is an impressive city, everything can be wild, nature as urbanism…I’m fascinated by this expressivity, this energy and that’s what I tried to put into the drawing.This view is from Santa Teresa, looking at the Sugar Loaf. I used watercolor, ink and pen”. 8.  Claudia Caruso

An interesting architectural sketch by Claudia, showing a sunken dwelling, merging with the supposedly natural landscape, using large windows in an attempt to bring the outside in. The pastel shades and soft lines come together to create an atmosphere of hidden space. 7. Maria Rochowiak studying landscape architecture in Agricultural University of Kraków, Poland

“This sketch was made in 2012 before my drawing exam ( in Poland there are exams of drawing to get into architecture or landscape architecture). The topic was Alice in the land of chess. I wanted to not only show chess pawns on a board but also with the cards . I wanted to get the effect of surprise. When you think about Alice you imagine the cards with the red mark like you can see in the Disney movie . These cards with the chess pawns and the board allow you to connect with Alice and chess game”.  6. Juan Hernandez

Multiple tiered boxes make for a robust and harsh architecture that is screaming out to be softened by lush planting, however one cannot help but appreciate the technical skill the architect had to apply to achieve such a structure, which leaves the viewer confused, should we appreciate the building or scorn at its invasive demeanor.  5. Anna Skorupska, landscape architect from W Moim Ogrodzie, Poland

“This sketch was drawn when I was doing my engineer’s degree in 2007. I’ve made this drawing as a proposal of a design solution for a schoolyard. It presents a small relaxation space for the students during breaks between lessons. This sketch is a free hand drawing made with soft pencils on normal drawing paper and colored in photoshop”. 4. Juhi Prasad, India “I made this sketch when I was studying in my second year of a Masters in Landscape architecture. This is one of the riverfront or Ghat in the city of Maheshwari in India. The term Ghat refers to a series of steps leading down to a body of water, particularly a holy river in this case the river Narmada. There’s something very beautiful about this place where landscape and architecture meet that I just loved. Medium : Pen/ Ink”

3.  Jaime Barba, BR Arquitectos, México If there is one thing we love it’s when an artist brings to the table their own unique signature style, and that’s certainly what Jaime did here. Quick lines, dashes of colour and unclear boundaries all blend together to create so much more than an image, but a powerful sense of place.

“This sketch of Mayor Plaza in Madrid was made with pencil on paper. My attention was caught by the depth and perspective of space that was perfectly complemented with the sunset shadows, as well as the vivid atmosphere teeming with local people and tourists”. 1. Moira Bering , LA student at Texas tech , USA

“This is one of my most favorite sketches that I have done. It was completed for an assignment where I was supposed to sketch a detailed two point perspective of anything through the use of pointillism, cross hatching, and vertical/horizontal lines. It was completed using a variety of micron pens on vellum”.  – That’s it for this week’s Sketchy Saturday, thank you all for a terrific edition, please keep your sketches coming in week in and week out, we love publishing them.
