This contemporary step-by-step guidebook demonstrates fundamental art and architectural concepts like proportion, perspective, and spatial relationships as you learn to draw a wide range of important residential, commercial, historic, and cultural buildings, bridges, towers, and other structures from all over the world and from ancient to modern—all shown from a variety of perspectives and scales. Each set of illustrations takes you from beginning sketch lines to a finished drawing. Author David Drazil’s classic drawing style will make this a go-to sourcebook for years to come.

Learn how to establish basic shapes; articulate lines for structure, forms, and shading; and add defining details by drawing these celebrated sites and many others:

  • Residential: Fallingwater in the US and the Silo in Copenhagen
  • Commercial: Dancing House in Prague and Sugamo Shinkin Bank in Tokyo
  • Monuments/Sacred: Stonehenge in the UK and the Cathedral of Brasilia
  • Bridges: Jade Belt Bridge in Beijing and the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Sydney, Australi

Draw Like an Artist: 100 Buildings and Architectural Forms is a library essential for any artist or architect who’s interested in learning how to draw and explore the underlying design principles of influential constructions.

The books in the Draw Like an Artist series are richly visual references for learning how to draw classic subjects realistically through hundreds of step-by-step images created by expert artists and illustrators.
