For the artists out there, these are sketched in pencil while walking around following my subjects, and tinted with watercolor during lunch and teatime. I skipped drawing in pen and ink over the pencil as I sometimes do. These days I’m tending to do either pencil + color or straight-to-ink + color – but rarely all three, pencil and ink and color.

Even though I do recommend all three when teaching beginners, after a few years of thinking about this, I feel it drains some ‘freshness’ (and slows you down) if you do too much drawing before the paint.

So – as you get more comfortable, you can skip one step – and just get more drawings done in the session 🙂

    Marc Taro Holmes! You are my hero! I have your book on Urban Sketching. Will you be at the next Montreal Urban Sketching? I live in NYS about an hour and half away and plan to join the group one of these Sundays.

      I’m planning to come to the next – the Atwater one 🙂 but if you’re coming all that way to draw, please keep in mind it’s a very casual outing! 🙂 🙂 I hope it’s ok!

    Fresh and informative and masterly spontaneous … NICE! Check one of my recent ³independent² sketches below (real quick ball point pen on site + water color from memory later. Cheers Maurice Amiel (USM observer for now)
