98: The World of Urban Sketching: Architecture, Art, and Travel with Stephanie Bower

Mike has been busy with the road to 100 episodes but found time to create a cute baby sea turtle painting. Stephanie Bower joins the podcast to talk about her journey into urban sketching. Stephanie reveals the devastating event that led to her first travel sketch experience. Of course, they talk about tools, supplies, and her process. Mike and Stephanie go through her new book, “The World of Urban Sketching,” and she highlights some incredible artists who shared their work. Her homework will keep you in line and bring focus.
