James Richards (@jrsketchbook) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Richard is a travel artist, urban sketcher, author and teacher and if I had to describe him in one word I’d have to say “joyful“. Every time I saw one of his videos he gave me that impression.
He mostly sketches and paints on location, I like the way he draws people and buildings and the tones he picks to paint them. I follow his online classes cause there’s always something interesting to learn and he knows how to explain things very well, check it out and you won’t regret it!
I feel super good about the first pic here cause you can see the leaning tower of Pisa hiding behind the Battistero di San Giovanni and the Cathedral, which are the symbols representing the city I come from and I grew up in. A stunning sketch I really like.
The second image shows Richard’s style of sketching crowds of people which is very quick and effective, gives you the freedom to paint different figures at various distances with basic lines without sacrificing the details you want to put in. An amazing skill and style I admire a lot!
