São Paulo – virtual urban sketching

São Paulo – virtual urban sketching - student project

I don't have much time alone these days to go outside and sketch. But after I finished this class, I was dying to give urban sketching a try, so I searched Google for pictures of great buildings in my hometown (São Paulo, Brasil) and chose MASP – the museum of modern art, designed by Lina Bo Bardi.

this is the pencil sketch:

this is the inked sketch (I just realized I suck at making shadows!):

and this is the final watercolored drawing:

thanks for this class, Julia!

[UPDATE]

I decided to give virtual urban sketching another try, since Masp is too simple. So, I tried to sketch the Sé Cathedral, in downtown São Paulo. But my kids were wreaking havoc around the house and I forgot to take a picture of the pencil sketch... 

So, here's the pen sketch:

and here's the watercolored final drawing:
