I‘m throwing this in for discussion.
Urban sketching is meant do be done on location. But what if the location is in your head or, the presketch has been done in your mind already and you bring it on paper back home?
While this picture might not qualify as an urban sketching, I „drew“ this in my mind while talking a walk with our six year old and sketched it completely from memory back home. A35AEA28-87F9-4736-A31E-D49E3141DE54
I’m sure there are some people who would argue that ‘urban sketching’ can only be done from life – people do love their rules. But you can tell this is inspired from the many locations you have done from life, so I say it qualifies. It’s simply done from the urban setting you have in your head.
