Learn to draw by sketching what surrounds you everyday. In Observational Sketching, author Mariko Higaki-an ISDA Gold Award-winning industrial designer based in Japan-teaches you how to practice and learn to sketch by using well-established observational techniques.

Perspective, proportion, lines, shapes, shading, and many other techniques can be learned through everyday practice and observation of the items you come in contact with everyday, from a backpack to your sunglasses. This book addresses how to approach sketching a range of shapes and materials and how to disassemble each object to accurately capture its unique design elements.
