Reply To: Fake urban sketching – need advice

Nice!  One option for urban sketching when it’s cold is sketching cafes or parts of your house!

I think in an effort to imitate Teoh’s fast, loose style you may have rushed this sketch a little.  Although Teoh colours fast, and is a relatively loose sketcher, he does put a decent amount of time into getting his overall proportions/perspective lined up at the start of a painting.  If you take some time right at the beginning of the sketch to figure out your proportions, you can do the actual drawing and painting fast and loose and it will still look “right”.
