My book: 5 minute sketching: Architecture is now available. |

I love sketching architecture and I love sketching fast! In this book I share ways of understanding buildings that will enable you to sketch fast. Buildings can be complex but with a few strategies in place you can record the most important features on your page quickly.

Blurb Books

These books I put together to document some of my early adventures with my sketchbook.

A week in Venice by Liz Steel

This book is a complete copy of a week in Venice in 2010.

This book summarises my sketching adventures  during 2010 – the year I went on a 11 week trip, sketching all the time!

One years worth of visits to the greatest tearoom Sydney has ever had. Sadly, it closed down in 2013.

Finally, simple book I put together to explain the beginning of my sketching journey.
