Sketches are quick rough drawings based on what the artist observes. This technique allows you to see life differently by paying attention to detail. An example is to draw all those new things you look at when you go for a walk. We can all capture a scene in a sketch with style if we use the correct technique. Jim Lammers asserts that the most important thing is to be bold and have perseverance. His explanations will motivate you to sketch and give you the tips needed to achieve great results. Lammers focuses on explaining the process of observation and various means of drawing. He includes exercises with examples that will help you develop a proper drawing rhythm. Capture the Moment: An Architect’s Guide to Travel Sketching is about enjoying our experiences and capturing the beautiful or interesting things in the environment.
Capture the Moment is the perfect book to learn about making sketches from scratch. This book explains which materials are the most appropriate and why. In addition, he describes mediums such as pencils, colored pencils, or watercolors. I liked the way Jim Lammers explains technical data in a way that is easy to understand. He includes information such as an introduction to color theory or how to keep proportion in shapes. Lammers includes examples of his interesting work. I liked the sketches he included because they are from fascinating places around the world. Lammers shares many helpful tips and techniques. He guides you on what details to observe, how to identify the appropriate shadows, or how to draw with perspective. This book will lead you to discover the essence of things and allow you to collect your experiences in a new way.
