Step out

Part 1 Be inspired by urban sketching as Tony Underhill explains the basics, benefits and sharing aspects of this popular sketching movement
No special kit An A5 sketchbook which opens to 81⁄2x11in. (22x28cm) as a double-page spread, a pencil and fibre-tipped pen, and you’re good to go!


An introduction to urban sketching

Sketching just for the pleasure of it

Sharing with and learning from others

Tony’s watercolour kit A small lightweight watercolour travel palette and two brushes, large and medium (or, for added convenience, waterbrushes with built-in reservoirs).

If you’ve ever drawn or painted something you’ve seen in front of you – perhaps the view from the living room window or maybe people in the coffee shop – you’re already halfway to being an urban sketcher. The other half involves ‘sharing’; more of that later.
