Sketchy Saturday

This week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10. Whoa, it’s great to be back, with the might Sketchy Saturday. We expect 2015 to be our most popular Sketchy Saturday ever. The first edition of the top 10 does not disappoint as we feature everything from the raw drawing talent to the more polished finished artwork. Each one special in its own unique way. Offering us something different to be appreciated every time.  What I really loved about this week’s featured top 10 was the depth of thought that some of the artists went into.  Nothing quite gives work meaning than the deep thinking that supports it, helping to manifest beauty and intrigue. Enjoy this week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10! 10. by B. Bernik, student of the 5th year in Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

“My motivation, for doing sketches, is all about the process how I see the things and how I transform them on the paper. I like to draw, drawing calms me and it’s good exercise for my brain and hand. My wish is to travel to different countries, and sketch their famous buildings, monuments, architecture. Location: Greece, Athens Temple of the Olympian Zeus. Style: First I do a fast sketch with pencil, then I go over with a dark pen and in the end I color it with different markers. Material: Sketchbook A4, Pencil 0.5, dark pen 0.5, markers (Forest Green, Powder Blue, Khaki, Gres, Cool gray).” 9. by Maria Rochowiak, landscape architecture student, Agricultural University of Kraków.

“I was inspired by a photo. It shows an old town street in Lublin.  Lublin is one of the biggest and oldest  cities in East Poland The old town’s street was a topic before my drawing exam in 2012 and I decided to draw another street in Lublin. I did this in the summer time and I found a lot of beautiful photos of this street. It is a fast sketch made from black ink and gray, blue markers”. 8. by Tim Gämperle, student at the University of Applied Science Garden & Landscape architect in Velp, Nederland.

“I’m in my first year and I love drawing. The style is conception from a new park in Arnhem. This drawing was drawn for a first project at school.

“I use a variety of materials including, ink, graphite markers, and sometimes watercolors.   It is an atmospheric sketch to illustrate a part of a Japenese garden which I designed for a school project. For this particular sketch, I used ink (Rotring) and graphite markets for the shadows.” 6. by Isa Eren AKBIYIK – Landscape Architect – Nota Design Landscape Architecture Office Owner – Antalya/Turkey

“I made this sketch for an assignment using ink and watercolor on A2. We had to represent Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water. ” 4.  by Tino Beck, a self-employed artist, Germany “The architects plan was to save the down-and-out building from 1851 by several reorganizations. Based just on some historic construction plans, I created this imaginary birds-eye-view by hand, mainly with watercolors in around A3. Its job was simply to represent how nice the living could be after the complex and expensive rescue: Greens in the backyard away from the street, balconies southbound, an extensive apartment on top of a parking space.”

“This sketch is of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore, Maryland. It was designed by Benjamin Henry Latrobe in a neoclassical style. I wanted to make this sketch in order to better understand the proportions and details of the building. It’s one of my favorites in Baltimore. It is a 2-point perspective in ink and wash.” 2. by Amaury Neto, a landscape architect from São Paulo Brasil.

” I did this sketch a little time ago, to practice my free hand drawing skills and I choose the Fallingwater because it’s such an iconic building in architecture history, and I love how the textures combine with each other.” 1. by Farnaz Dehghani, painter, architect

” As a painter I always needed a viewer ,who could communicate with your work, who could hear your message through art….. who could see you without barriers, go-between, galleries provide this aspect for artist.  This is an open museum of human activity, in other words an open art museum for painters ,sculptors,…. some cities as Tehran are such crowded, without a plaza unlike many historical cities, that could prepare a free space for creating . City, needs a spiritual gift, like when a passenger attracts to a street artist’s work, cities are our second home, and home is not a factory of machines ,we are not robots,we are soul, we need to see and feel colors as we walk …..” – That’s this week’s Sketchy Saturday Top 10, congratulations to all of you who featured, you have come out on top of a very talented bunch of people.
