Seeing your city via sketching

“Everybody sees the same place differently” says DR Director Peter Richards, explaining part of the appeal of the urban sketching phenomenon.

Drawing has always been part of working life for Peter Richards and it’s integral to DR’s approach to collaborating and problem solving with clients. It’s also the focus of Peter’s involvement with the world-wide movement of urban sketching. Sketchers meet for several hours a week in locations all over the world and share the experience of documenting the life and details of the city. They travel for an annual conference, meeting last year in Porto, Portugal and this year, Amsterdam.

Last week ABC Radio’s Rebecca Levingston interviewed Peter Richards about the appeal of urban sketching in his own city, Brisbane.  Here’s the interview link:
