Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nice has published more than a dozen fine books, including the very successful Painting Weathered Buildings in Pen, Ink & Watercolor (LJ 3/15/00). The present volume is a delightful concept for encouraging beginning artists or for inspiring professionals. Nice explores a variety of journal styles (travel, reference, fantasy, life journals), using basic art supplies like colored pencils, pen and ink, and watercolor. In her hands, a blank book can become a visual diary, a safe place to try out ideas, or a work of spontaneous art in itself. Highly recommended. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
