Announcing a new book from Marc Taro Holmes and North Light Books: “The Urban Sketcher: Techniques for Seeing and Drawing on Location”

June 24, 2014


I’ve been holding in this announcement for months now! I’ve been well nigh bursting with not being able to talk about it.

Finally I can tell you guys about “The Urban Sketcher: Techniques for Seeing and Drawing on Location”.  My up coming how-to art-instructional  ‘workshop in a book’. It’s a hands on course condensing everything I’ve learned about urban sketching and drawing on location. It’s coming out in October from North Light Books, and is already available on Amazon for pre-order.

In the next few weeks I’ll have more news, some free tutorials to expand on the book content, and possibly some details about a book-related online workshop. (Possibly! If there’s enough interest :)

I want to say thanks very much for following my blog all this time. This book would not have been possible without all of your interest and involvement.

    Congratulations! I know how much work you must have put in on this book, lots of very long hours and many decisions. I cannot wait to get my copy and share it with my artist friends and students. I pre-ordered from Amazon an hour ago. I also forwarded your post on to Patrick of Toscana Americana to encourage him to hire you to teach on one of his painting trips. Those trips are so much fun, I hope you will decide to teach for him. I will be the first to sign up! Again, congrats…keep up the good work.
