A busy street in shadow with the sun drenched buildings by Rose Barton

‘Sketching Landscapes over the summer break is one of the best ways to keep L.A fresh in your mind. Before I go out sketching, I like to wash my pages in ink to give my drawings more character. I drew this sketch with charcoal on a street in Cadiz, Spain then worked into it later with emulsion and chalk. I tried to convey the narrow busy street in shadow with the sun drenched buildings further ahead.’ 6. by Edgar Cern from Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts in Lithuania

A project focused on describing an idea in multiple dimensions by Michael Kulik

‘This pen and ink drawing was completed during a hand rendering course that emphasized visual vocabulary as a means of translating the designer’s language. Whether it is for the visual aid of a client, design development, or for simple practice, drawing engages the senses and demands understanding. Here, the project focused on describing an idea in multiple dimensions for a clearer, more robust definition.’ 1. by Leo Lee – student studying at Chung Yuan Christian University in Taiwan, majoring in Landscape Architecture
