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
Well, I was busy working for my feature here on Doodlewash, but that didn‘t mean, I didn‘t sketch.
I did this while I was waiting for the family arriving back home from france.
The „Grosse Schanze“ in Bern is located directly above the central station.

Oldsmobile Omega 1978 spotted during my lunch break.
Please tell me if I’m wrong here.
