Urban sketching:San Antonio, Texas

I’ve decided to explore the world of urban sketching. Urban Sketching is drawing from direct observation whether it be outdoors or indoors. You can do this at your current location where you live or if you are traveling. Seeing Peoples sketches on instagram it looks very interesting to try. I haven’t done that many sketches, but so far I’ve like what I have done with some of the challenges am facing. One of those challenges is being able to fit what am sketching on a small piece of paper.  Should I sketch it horizontal or vertical on the paper? Also trying to get as much detail into the sketch, and then painting it with watercolors.  My other challenge is quickly drawing people who may be in the area and are constantly in motion. Hopefully something I can semi-master quickly, but in the mean time I just take a photo and use that as a reference to sketch people in.
