“The sketch was done as part of my documentation of my journey to Almaty, Kazakhstan in summer 2013. I was hiking through the mountains and while approaching a turn in the road I witnessed that incredible view, and sketched it in pencil on the spot, then coloured it later on. The medium is watercolour on paper, done in a realistic style”.

“The projects intent is to manipulate the existing topography by exploring the tilted plain, and how one can inhabit the constant flux of changing platforms.  The goal is to encourage more movement and activity between programs and spaces by providing pathways that connect to one another by either overlapping, splitting, or intersecting with others.  This sketch is done as a two-point perspective section axon in order to understand what are the possibilities between the interchanging floor plains”. 8. Kristen Kuzdub, Canada

‘This is one of a series of five sketches (drawn with pencil on vellum) that show spatial qualities throughout an Urban Design Proposal for Downtown Winnipeg. This sketch views through the proposed main public square which is surrounded by proposed shops and existing streets, a proposed co-operative building is in the background. It provides a sense of scale and understanding to the design elements for this public square”. 7. Karolina Lopusinska, landscape architect, Birmingham, UK

Ok, so this is completely interior, but it was included in our Sketchy Saturday top 10, due to the level of intricate detail that went into it. “The sketch was pen and ink on tracing paper, done (2002) a Dining Room interior design proposal for one of the Saudi Prince, for his house in Morocco.

” I love drawings and I sketch/draw mainly for relax. However, I see a great benefit from drawing architecture/landscape since it allows me to observe more careful and more detail at buildings/landscape. Therefore I can understand architecture/landscape better and it creates chances for new ideas.Location of sketch: Hanoi, Vietnam, Material used: Pencil”. 3.Karolina Ciok

Yes, we can see the smoke too, but this entire building looks like it’s on fire! These deep sensual colors and rich tones, really pull you in and take you away to an industrial age. The artist certainly has to be brave to pull off a piece of work like this, so much can go wrong with this technique it’s so easy to over do it, but Karoline managed to pull it all together and create one fantastic piece of art. 2. Peter McQuillan

Peter is becoming a regular contributor to our increasingly popular Sketchy Saturday, you can see his previous work here! Peter expresses an unmistakable style that he uses to create almost dreamlike settings of his landscapes. In this piece of art  feelings of relaxation and calm are created, making this a very inviting and desirable space. 1. Mirsa Gishti Sketchy-Saturday There’s something eerie and beautiful about this picture that I just loved, with obvious focus on the building itself, the artist somehow met the challenge of creating intrigue around the edges, to such an extent that you want the artist to sketch more, so we can find out what secrets lie beyond the scene of what is presented. – We hope you enjoy Sketchy Saturday as much as we do, it really is one of the highlights of our daily publications on LAN. What makes this feature so unique is that we create it together, long may it continue! Check out the Sketchy Saturday official Facebook album and see literally hundreds of incredible sketches!
