“This sketch is a part of the design development process for a small landscape in India. We use sketching as a medium for connecting with the space, as it gives us a much better sense of scale. All preliminary designs are worked out via sketches. The medium used is black ink on plain A5 paper.”  – Location: Basavkalyan, Andhra Pradesh, India. 8. by Daniel Dillenburg, Landscape Architect from Bladihaus Architects

“This drawing is my own interpretation of the gardens of S.Martinho de Tibães Monastery, one of my favourite places in the North of Portugal. The Monastery was found at the end of the 10th c., although it was in the 17th c. an 18th c. that it reached a particular importance. The garden is composed with sophisticated elements such as an incredible stairway and a beautiful vegetation composition. Its colours and lights are impressive. Along the spaces all your senses are stimulated in a delightful experience that inspires drawing all the time. It is a place full of beauty, mystery and fantasy. An irresistible treasure for the lovers of art.” 6. by Archit Singh, Landscape Artist, Graduate Student of National Institute of Technology (Department of Architecture),Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh, India

I worked a lot in my own style to create this work.” 4. by Djordje Pralica, from Serbia “This sketch was a part of project done for my architectural studies.

Technique is simple, the sketch was done on regular white sheet of paper with colored pencils.”
