(starred review) Steel, a professional architect and avid sketcher of buildings, gets right to the essence of seeing and drawing urban spaces. Her book is structured identically to People, the other currently available title in the series, with four chapters containing short sketching projects made up of quick tips, successful drawings, and brief explanations of techniques. Various types and styles of buildings, both modern and historic, and kinds of locations, both interior and exterior, are covered. The techniques and supplies chapters highlight ways to work minimally and shave time from the process, which can be especially helpful when drawing outdoors. Either on its own or as a companion to its series mate, this guide will be a boon to readers who want to engage creatively with their urban environments.--Heather Halliday "Library Journal" (2/2/2017 12:00:00 AM)
Many useful techniques, such as how you can measure angles and proportions, what to focus on, and also gives ideas of things to draw... It's a book that you don't have to read in sequence, and one that you can easily refer back to for inspiration.--Teoh Yi Chie "Parka Blogs" (3/18/2017 12:00:00 AM)
The 5-Minute Sketching books feel like you've just scored the unbelievable luck of landing in a sketching group with the author.--Bekki Page "Doodlewash Blog" (8/11/2018 12:00:00 AM)
This is a book you'll want to read more than once. It's a book you'll want to study and apply to your art... This book provides lots of ideas you'll want to pursue... This is a book worthy of your time.--Larry Marshall "Larry D. Marshall Blog" (10/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
