A comprehensive and practical guide full of advice and inspiration for anyone wishing to capture the beauty of the urban landscape.

The wonderful thing about drawing buildings is that, wherever you travel around the globe, you will never be short of subjects to inspire you. From the most elaborate of Renaissance cathedrals, through to the humble garden shed, you will always be able to practise your skills and learn a few techniques in the process.

This hands-on and inspirational book will encourage you to meet the exciting challenges of drawing and painting buildings using a variety of media and a wide range of techniques, including pencil, pen, graphite powder, watercolour, water-soluble pencils and Indian ink. As you work through this book, you will look at materials and their qualities then move on to explore how to put these materials to best use when drawing specific types of building. You will be led gently through levels of learning, with easy and more challenging exercises progressing your knowledge and developing your skills.

As the book is divided into discrete sections, you can dip in to a particular type of building that you wish to draw, and use the information and illustration provided, while extended teaching exercises take you through the way the author approaches composing and completing a drawing. Fully annotated paintings, working drawings and extended projects reveal how each effect was achieved.

Detailed artworks in a range of styles and media are thoroughly annotated to demonstrate key techniques and important details and there are invaluable exercises for understanding perspective, negative and positive space, tone, choosing details and constructing large-scale images.

The book includes thorough studies of a wide range of different architectural styles, from town houses to rural cottages and barns, from churches and and classical architecture to continental cafes and street scenes. Taylor’s exquisite drawings and paintings demonstrate the quality of the results that can be achieved by following his helpful guidance and advice.

Pencils

Vertical soft shading is highly effective on walls. Diagonal soft shading works particularly well in windows to create reflections.

Watercolour pencils

One pencil colour can be laid on top of another and then washed over with clear water to achieve a brickwork effect.

Pen line and wash

A quick line sketch with a fibre-tip pen can be given substance by selective washing. Don’t forget to leave some areas of paper dry.

MECHANICS: THE ELEMENTS THAT HOLD A COMPOSITION TOGETHER

Rule of Thirds

Rule of Thirds

Perspective

You will always need to direct your attention to the way in which both sides of the building appear to recede into the distance.

Squaring Up

This technique involves placing a grid on top of your original sketch. If you don’t wish to draw directly on to your sketch, you can work on tracing paper.

Rule of Thirds

Positioning the horizon along one third of the composition and the roof apex along the vertical third creates a balanced picture.

Rural buildings

A sketch of an old wooden barn can be made to explore its context, such as how it interacts with the background.

Urban buildings

While the grand scale of a church is initially a little intimidating, the pure symmetry makes it easy to construct.

Street scenes

Including some human interest reinforces the purpose of the buildings and makes the drawing more interesting.
