It's an irresistible subject, at once visually overwhelming yet with a design structure that conveys a harmonious whole. As with many of my urban sketches, I begin by trying to make sure everything I want to draw will fit onto my page.

Freehand Drawing and Discovery by James Richards

I have been meaning to write this post for the last few months … so now finally today….

I have known Jim online for a number of years and was privileged to meet him in real life at the USK symposiums in Lisbon and Santo Domingo.
