10. By Merima Pernjak, BA Landscape Architect, from Cyprus
“I graduated in Landscape Architecture two years ago. I work on residential and commercial projects all over the beautiful island of Cyprus. I found out during my drawing lessons just how much I enjoy to draw and that I have a little talent, just waiting to be explored. This drawing was created during my second year at university. In this lesson we focused on perspective drawing as well as the depiction of depth and shadows using only pencils.”
9. By Vincent Lemay, Landscape architect”For the past 13 years, The Montreal International Mosaicultures Exhibition has been promoting landscape architecture projects from around the world. This year, I drew a sketch for the City of Montreal where I currently work as a landscape architect. The garden, located within the Montreal Botanical Gardens, brings together 25,000 plants and the sketch shows a pedestrian walkway under the city’s skyline. The final version of the sketch and full description of the project is displayed on site.” 8. By Jessie Hong
“Kenroku-en is located in the Kanazawa, Japan, one of the three great gardens of Japan. Built between 1620s-1840s, this garden contains the oldest fountain in Japan, which is operating by natural water pressure. In winter, the ropes attached in a conical array work as a huge umbrella to protect the old pine trees from heavy snow.”
7. By Djordje Pralica from Serbia
“In my free time, I like to take long walks in urban areas of Belgrade and draw scenes which are special at that particular moment. The aim was to catch the right moment before sunset. The scene represents one of the most visited places in the Kalemegdan Fortress in Belgrade. The place located in the sketch is near the confluence of the rivers Sava and Danube. In the background there is a view of New Belgrade’s parks and architecture as two inseparable elements.”
6. By Kinga Piskorska
“It is a pencil sketch I made before the entrance exam in hand drawing for the Cracow University of Technology. The task during the ELIPSA Course of Drawing was to create a composition of a tree and a shrub from imagination, paying attention to aerial perspective, shades and contrasts. The picture shows traditional Polish landscape, famous for its disorderly, wild beauty. Polish countryside always strikes me with the variety of both plants and landforms.”
5. By Tyler Hannah – Graduated from Colorado State University in Landscape Architecture
“Tiger Bark Fig Bonsai drawn with pencil. The bonsai located inside the Denver Botanic Gardens, intrigued me with its textures and forms, and is a key piece of a larger and successful landscape dynamic.”
4. By Jana Sebova
“The sketch shows a new bridge across a small pond with even smaller islet in the Arboretum, Liptovsky Hradok, Slovakia. The arboretum was well known in the past. There was life there, even on this small islet, where intimate concerts were held. In my Diploma work I tried to reinstate its former glory and bring life to this glamorous piece of nature in the city centre.”
3. By Morozova Lada, landscape architect from Moscow
“Even a small residence needs a private and comfortable space for rest. How can one manage this, when the windows of neighbors are so close? Just make an arch with pergolas at the centre, surround this patio with the smell of flowers and enjoy the result!”
2. By Wiktor Kłyk, landscape architect
”Simple stream until today, closed by the framework of concrete walls. Calm waters visually acquire power, cross the borders, sculpting power lines in an open landscape with freely scattered black alders and low-growing species of willows.”
1. By Devin Kimmel
“This is a drawing of a proposed house and garden. It was inspired by French country houses. The sketch is graphite on vellum.”
