"I like to discover new urban patterns, motifs and rhythms and express them in my freehand watercolor sketches. I try to sketch on location at least once a week, regardless I am alone or with my friends. It helps me to train my art vision, to experiment with new color schemes and feel more related to my city. Every sketch is a new little challenge and a big inspiration".
