How to Keep a Sketchbook Journalby Claudia Nice
Synopses & Reviews
Keep a sketchbook journal and explore your world, preserve your thoughts and celebrate life
More than a diary of written words, a sketchbook journal allows you to indulge your imagination and exercise your artistic creativity. It is a personal, private place where you have unlimited freedom to express yourself, experiment, discover, dream and document your world. The possibilities are endless.
In How to Keep a Sketchbook Journal, Claudia Nice shows you samples from her own journals and provides you with advice and encouragement for keeping your own. She reviews types of journals, from theme and garden journals to travel journals and fantasy sketchbooks, as well as the basic techniques for using pencils, pens, brushes, inks and watercolors to capture your thoughts and impressions.
Exactly what goes in your journal is up to you. Sketch quickly to capture a thought or image before it vanishes. Draw or paint with care, to render an idea or vision as realistically as possible. Write about what you see. The choice is yours--and the memories you'll preserve will last a lifetime.
Describes the materials, preparation, and techniques needed to begin a sketchbook journal, and describes how to create such theme sketchbooks as travel, garden, reference, study, discovery, and imagination.
Appropriate for all artistic levels, this instructive book shows how anyone can keep a sketchbook journal. Types include theme journals, reference journals, in-depth journals, and fantasy journals. 200 color illustrations.
