I studied art at college but never gain the skill of quick sketch as I’m too much of a perfectionist, This book easily breaks down how you can achieve quick sketch, how to create those sketches into quality lively drawings and paintings, and how you can capture structure, movement, wind and other aspects of the natural world.
I wasn’t expecting much from this book, but it has gone far beyond my expeditions, it gives you an in-depth guide on birds, plants, flowers, trees, animals, landscapes and for me especially, insects!!!!
Initially I was surprised about the wealth of text in the first 70 pages but it’s very much needed to understand this art form. This is the one book you need in your life, even if you don’t want to create a journal, this is a drawing bible!!!
