Do You See What I See?
Warning: I’m back on my noticing kick. This time it’s a slightly different take than last September's post.
So many times when I start an urban sketch it seems like I go on autopilot. People tend to be my go to focus. For others it’s the architecture, others it’s the straight on view. All are good, but sometimes it’s good to change it up a little.
Following Rob Walker’s lead in The Art of Noticing, I started taking photos of things that catch my attention as I walk along the street and on vacation. Going through some images that I’ve taken over the the last year or two I was surprised by how different they are compared to what I see when I sketch.
Here’s the Trick
That’s my challenge!
- What catches my eye?
- What jumps out at me?
- Sketch that with just enough context to make it an urban sketch
Even if the bee would stay long enough to be sketched, this needs more context to be an urban sketch!
