Have you always wanted to sketch like a pro?

Have you always been interested in outdoors sketching but don't know where to start?
Would you like to become better at sketching?
The Answer Is Found Just One Click Away...

It was in the summer back in 2014, and I was in Greece for an art exhibition...

I was visiting many amazing places like the Acropolis, Aegina Island, and Santorini. 

I thought to myself, why not take out my pen and sketchbook and make some sketches here as memories of the places I have traveled?

I have tried urban sketching before by joining the Urban Sketchers on a few occasions but they were pretty amateurish. On this trip, I decided to make it a point to sketch these beautiful places. After a few doodles at the Acropolis and Aegina Island, I slowly gained some confidence and made some sketches at Santorini. 

Despite many hiccups, I overcame challenges along the way and after years of experimenting and learning from the best, I became pretty good at it and I sucked less and less.  

Now, the time has come for me to share and give back to the community in my groundbreaking book...

First, check out this amazing review by renowned sketcher and Youtuber Teoh Yi Chie in this video that he shared...

Inside This Amazing Book, Here Are Some of the Secrets That Will Be Revealed...

Example 1: Turkey, 2014

Pages 36 - 43

I was in this amazing country in September, 2014 following my visit to Greece. This culturally rich country had much to offer to my art as I witnessed unique architectures like the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Galata Tower, to magnificent landforms like the rocks in Cappadocia, which I spent a day in. The Bosphorus Strait was also a great sight for sketching with the skyline of the city lying behind the waters with seagulls, while Taksim, a residential area in Istanbul where I stayed, offered unique sights as well. All these were great inspirations for my sketches and I made many that I was happy about here.

Bosphorus Strait with Blue Mosque and ferry, Istanbul, Turkey

The Istanbul skyline was a real unique feature with the mosques and houses, as well as the occasional ferry passing by.  

This was the original scene where I sat down. It was nearing dusk and the weather was getting colder so I had to hurry up!      

Sketching the Galata Bridge with the lines dangling out from the poles of the fishermen was a unique experience for me as the details were really enjoyable to add in.

The original scene where the waters were a rich blue and these were the houses in front of the Galata Tower in the background.

The Galata Tower and Bridge was an iconic landmark of Istanbul and I couldn't miss sketching these structures!

These were amazing rocks I witnessed in Cappadocia!

These amazing rocks in Cappadocia were a great subject for sketching and I made this in sandy conditions!

This was the original scene taken outside my hotel room, after I have done sketching.

I captured this scene of the hot air balloons above the rocks outside my hotel in Cappadocia on my first morning.


Example 2: Switzerland, 2017

Pages 102 - 111

Picturesque mountain scenes, clear skies and beautiful lakes - these are common scenes found in this amazing country. Home to the Matterhorn and the Jungfrau, two of the world's most popular peaks, the country is covered with snow-capped mountains that are conducive for skiing and hiking. The cities are also neatly arranged, ranging from the financial capital of Geneva to Zürich, and transport systems are convenient and easy to use. Interlaken and its surrounding towns like Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen were great places to view its nature. Spending a week in Switzerland would allow you to unwind and bask in its natural wonders.  

Original photo of the Matterhorn and surrounding peaks.

Sketching the Matterhorn in cold weather was not an easy task but I managed to sketch the mountain peak and add in the colors later!

This was the Observatory Tower when I alighted from the train.

The Gornergrat Observatory Tower was found just next to the station and I made a little sketch here of this iconic landmark and added in the colors later. 

The scene just across the jetty in Spiez. 

This sketch was done while I was waiting for the ferry at Spiez. The weather was rainy and I used droplets of blue paint and dark blue paint to depict the rain and gloomy weather.

One of the scenes at Lauterbrunnen captured by my camera.

Lauterbrunnen was a like a fairy land with its picturesque mountain scenes and famous Staubbach Falls. The trees, houses and snow-capped mountains made a great scene.


Example 3: France, 2018

Pages 136 - 145

France is another beautiful country located in Europe. From its artistic and cosmopolitan cities like Paris to exotic islands like Mont Saint-Michel, many adventures await the traveler. The south of France is also a great place to relax, ranging from the town of Cassis and its surrounding towns like La Ciotat and Saint Cyr-Sur-Mer, where visitors can enjoy a peaceful and quiet vibe in the midst of greenery, coasts and great food. 

Visiting the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Montmartre and touring the city by foot are all great activities to do in Paris and I made many sketches here that I was really pleased that depicts the major tourist spots here.

This was the original photo that I took from on top of the Eiffel Tower.
Sketching the Seine River from on top of the Eiffel Tower was a real enjoyment as the breeze caressed my face during the sketch and I was quite happy with this sketch I made.
The original photo where I made the sketch. This amazing place offered visitors the chance to walk up the stairs to reach the top. The amazing views of the surroundings could be seen during the journey up.
Mont Saint-Michel is a unique island off Normandy, the north-western part of France. Sketching the top of the tower was pretty fun and putting the stamp at the top right hand corner was an icing on the cake.
This was the original view from on top of Arc de Triomphe.
Arc de Triomphe was another popular destination of visitors of Paris, France. This sketch of the Paris skyline was made at the top of Arc de Triomphe.
After climbing to the top of the church, I was greeted with this view and I saw that the arches made a very interesting scene.
Montmartre is a hill located in the northern part of Paris and there was a church located here. Climbing all the way up to the top and sketching this scene was truly satisfying!
