Architecture - Virtual Sketching

These sketches express my love for discovering new places. The means I use to discover them are both acting as a tourist and transforming the places through my sketches.


During the pandemic in 2020, at some point, it became increasingly difficult to sketch outside. This is when a great Urban Sketcher artist, Anne Rose Osterbaan came up with an idea. Hers was to look up interesting spots on Google Street View and sketch them. She set up a group "Virtual Travel Sketch" with daily events, each time sketching a different city. She archived the group in July, but others took over.


I kept on doing virtual sketches as well as urban sketches (sketches done live, on location) because both had something unique to offer. Exploring places I didn't have the possibility to visit was and still is definitely appealing! 

I mostly used pen and watercolour, sometimes pen and ink and in case of the Quebec City image, it was drawn using crayons.
