This blog is devoted to my architectural sketching adventures and musings about the integration of architecture and sketching.
I hope not only to share my own on-location architectural sketches but provide tips and methodologies for sketching and understanding architecture.
Also, most importantly, I wish to explore ways in which, in a digital age, we can not only defend but
promote freehand sketching within the architectural profession.

Extra Sketching Architecture class and workshop!

Time: 10.00am - 1.30pm.  Cost $150.00

1 Full Day workshop

You don’t need perfect perspective to draw buildings but you do need to understand what you are looking at. This 4 week Friday course will help you grasp the fundamentals of drawing architecture and have fun doing it! I will share with you my system for drawing architecture which involves seeing forms and structure and detail, describing edges and using simple strategies for perspective.

Working with ink and watercolour wash, we will also explore ways to sketch architecture with lively lines and loose and colourful watercolour washes. A series of exercises has been developed to help all levels of participants progress from simple buildings to more elaborate architecture.. and I will also be doing demonstrations each week to show how it all fits together.

Extensive handouts will be issued to each participant of both the 4 week classes and the workshops.


  1. Liz - I am SO wanting an architecture class! What about those of us who are a long way from you - as in, for me, NYC. What about on-line, or you might be planning a trip to the states/NYC area. Please do consider. Best, Linda. (
