Last week I visited Birmingham, England’s second city, where I met up with Sarah Taylor Silverwood, an artist who is making a bit of a name for herself in the world of drawing. We spent the day talking about drawing buildings and cities, just before she goes off to Chicago to start drawing that famous city. Find out more about Sarah here: http://www.sarahsilverwood.com

In this video Sarah explains how she uses tracing paper to build layers and add depth to her drawings. I’m sorry about the sound – I had a failing battery but I’ve done my best to reduce the noisy children in the background!
