This February 2023, I had the opportunity to spend 12 days in Long Beach, Los Angeles, I was inspired by the opportunity to capture Urban Sketch Book Drawing and it was an incredible experience.
During my time in Long Beach, I spent a lot of time exploring the city and capturing Urban Sketch Book Drawing. The urban street scene in Long Beach is truly inspiring, with its colourful buildings, bustling sidewalks, and unique architecture. I loved capturing the essence of the city in my sketches, from the palm trees swaying in the breeze to the street performers entertaining passersby.
In addition to drawing, I also spent time creating a pen-ink map of Los Angeles’ key landmarks. From the Hollywood sign to the Santa Monica Pier, there are so many iconic sites that define Los Angeles. Drawing each landmark was a great way to appreciate the city’s history and culture.
One of the highlights of my trip was visiting the famous Getty Center in Los Angeles. The museum is home to an impressive collection of art, and the architecture of the building itself is a work of art. I loved walking around the beautiful gardens and taking in the stunning views of the city.
Another memorable experience was exploring the beaches along the coast of Long Beach. The sand was soft and warm, and the ocean was a beautiful shade of blue. It was the perfect place to relax and soak up some sun after a long day of drawing and exploring.
Overall, my 12 days in Long Beach and Los Angeles were full of creativity, inspiration, and adventure. I can’t wait to go back and continue exploring all that this amazing city has to offer.
