Linera, January 13, 2007 (view all comments by Linera)
This book is an excellent introduction to Nature Journaling. The author sets out her method in easy-to-understand steps, taking the mystery out of buying paper, brushes, and paints, and how to set up a palette, make a palette map, and get started drawing the natural world.

The illustrations are Jude Siegel's own vibrant drawings and paintings. This book made me reach for my pen and watercolors!
