'Cat House' Ink Sketch with colour pencil

The Kelpies, Ink Sketch


Looking closely at life, at buildings, and at dynamics of space in cities like Rome, Paris or Edinburgh evokes mankind's deep culture and soaring achievements. Rough sketching explores sounds and smells as well as colour, tone and bustle. Immediacy is hard to convey but sketching at speed with an unforgiving ink medium, leaves doubts and errors incorporated within the final images.
My original sketches are drawn using Staedler Pigment Ink pens, which are chosen for lightfast and waterproof qualities and ease of use in the open air. Whenever possible sketches are drawn directly onto Fabriano 220/300 gsm smooth paper, or equivalent.


Stuart is an enthusiastic artist who considers drawing, painting and photography to be core tools for any design process. His current ongoing project - ‘The Architectural Tourist’ - involves sketching, photographing and interpreting architecture and public spaces in over 30 cities throughout Europe.
