Drawing Buildings and Vintage Urban-sketching from 1920


While doing some research for content to share to the Drawing Ideas ART Facebook community, I have come across a stunning collection of sketches from 1920 by a little known architect and illustrator names: Noe L

These are wonderful examples of the architectural style of the time and pleasing to see some vintage urbansketching.

Drawings of Building facades, windows, balconies captured intricately by the artist.

If find these inspiring, check out the Urbansketching community for local outdoor architecture and urban drawing events in your area.
