Architecture is an iterative process requiring the folding of ideas and technology to be blended together. As a process, art requires a circular effort of trial and error, success and failure, coupled with the ability to communicate graphically or sculpturally, becoming art in and of itself.  However, to be an effective communication tool, hand drawn sketches are fast and “wispy”, with their only purpose being to explore an idea or pull out the essence of a thing, a sense of space, in as few strokes as possible.  Introducing color into this sketchy effort immediately adds a layer of information that creates a hierarchy of information, imbuing a depth in the sketch that conveys the idea more quickly.  Richard Turlington enjoys this process as a private and introspective method to facilitate thoughts and expressions about Architecture, space and surface.
