Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Johnson, the author and illustrator of 17 books on art and nature, has updated her popular 1991 volume in the "Sierra Club" series. An inspiration for the naturalist/ artist, this practical, readable work focuses on drawing and sketching as ways of deepening one's relationship with nature. The complexities of color theory are kept to a minimum. Helpful source lists for art suppliers, national art workshops, and the bibliography have been brought up-to- date. This and Wendy Jelbert's Painting Nature's Details (Batsford Ltd., dist. by Trafalgar Square, 1996), which represents the fine arts perspective, should satisfy nearly all patrons. Highly recommended for general collections.
