Drawing & Painting Buildings
(More pictures on my blog)

I bought this book to help with my outdoor sketches.

The book is roughly divided into three parts. The first talks about the materials. The examples featured mainly uses pencils, ink and watercolour. The second part looks at drawing small subjects like bricks, tiling, textures. The last part explores various building styles.

The coverage on perspective is very basic. There are the usual 1, 2 and 3 point perspective all covered in 6 pages. I was expecting more from a book
Very nice book. The author shows how to draw buildings and architectural stuff by using several media (graphite, ink, watercolor). He gives very interesting advices and proposes several final projects which cover the most representative styles of buildings.
