“While a photo is a direct representation of a subject, a sketch looks deeper into the author’s feeling and state of mind, at that time and place. The process of freehand sketching today is more relevant than ever. It’s not just a way to 'interpret' a subject. It’s a way of seeing, observing, understanding the space," says avid architecture and urban sketcher Dan Hogman.

In this video here, the artist brings alive a beautiful Spanish door that he probably captured during one of his many travels. The wooden batten door, with a cloud of ornamental bougainvillea on the top, is revealed in mesmerising detailing of myriad patterns and textures. The documentation of this impressive doorway by Hogman definitely calls for attention, as it hints at hiding a secret getaway.
