More About This Title Keeping Sketchbooks

English

Artists use sketchbooks for a myriad of purposes—to capture a moment, to develop an idea, to record a scene. This book advises on how to enjoy keeping a sketchbook and how to make the most of their use. With practical examples throughout, it is a beautiful and valuable guide that will inspire you to pick up a pencil or brush, mark the page, and start your own visual diary. Topics covered include looking at different types of sketchbooks—their size, theme, and purpose; ideas for drawing and painting in a sketchbook inside, outside, or while traveling; and advice on professional sketchbooks and scrapbooks.
