Urban Sketching

Shaheed Park

This is the page which documents all the urban sketching in my current home town where I live at the moment. Kuwait. So come along as I share with you Kuwait one sketch at a time all the while blogging about it.


In winter you will find me making the most of the beautiful cool weather and sketching outdoors as much as I can to capture all the interesting places.


While in summer when temperatures are scorching hot my urban sketching is then mostly confined to closed places such as malls and cafes. It's then when you will see me doing more of the interiors urban sketches.

Luckily Malls here in Kuwait are huge and filled with beautifully decorated places which are also a pleasure to sketch and capture.
