A kind of vicarious sketching tour around the City that Never Sleeps
"Cities are full of promise," goes the introduction to Citysketch New York. "From the amazing art and architecture to the diverse food and culture, each city has its own unique collection of treasures to unearth."
If your budget doesn't stretch to a sketching holiday in US, this may well be the next best thing: a kind of vicarious tour around the sites and sounds of the Big Apple.
The book, by artist Melissa Wood, offers "100 creative prompts for sketching" the City that Never Sleeps, including the Statue of Liberty, Broadway and Radio City Music Hall.
Each page contains a fact about the city and a prompt for a specific site. Sketches are started for you, but it's your job to complete them.
The book is beautifully put together, and suitable for artists of any standing and any age.
