Detailed Freehand Architectural Sketches Showcase Incredible Skill

In this digital age, it’s refreshing to see that some people are continuing to learn their craft by taking pencil to paper. Architecture student Adelina Gareeva showcases her detailed freehand architectural sketches via her Instagram, allowing followers to see her progress as a student.

Gareeva, who is also a model, currently studies at the Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering (KSUAE). The freehand drawings show Gareeva’s deft hand, as she easily moves from complex fantasy architecture to the lines of iconic monuments.

A glance at her work shows how Gareeva builds up her drawings from quick pencil strokes to deeply outlining the finished pieces. A refreshing change from digital illustrations, the architectural drawings are a throwback to times past when the sketches themselves were works of art.
