Architect Frank Harmon – telling stories with sketches

I came across this video on The News and Observer and just loved the simplicity of Architect, Frank Harmon’s sketches. They looks so easy, but they come from a lifetime of practice, observation and knowledge of building construction, place and people.

Frank tells stories with his sketches on his blog – Native Places – using the sketch as the draft of a story or observation. I love that he uses only 200 words. That’s a skill to learn!

Take a look and be impressed with clear thought and simplicity of line and watercolour wash.

As I post this Hurricane Florence is headed towards North Carolina. I hope Frank is tucked-up safe somewhere warm and dry.
