This review is from: The Sierra Club Guide to Sketching in Nature (Sierra Club Books Publication) (Paperback)
This book is an excellent text book with inspirational content.
Don't be put off by title which may lead you to think that it is only relevant to Americans...it's just as relevant world wide.
I speak as a professional artist of 50 years drawing, painting and sketching.
It really is a gem!
And just to make it clear...I do not know the author but do know that she is an excellent artist and fine teacher which can be seen throughout her book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-buy for sketchers and would-be sketchers, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I stumbled on Cathy Johnson's website and was sufficiently impressed to buy two of her books. The 'other' book on Visual Journalling was not good but this book is excellent. So often 'how to' books by artists simply rehearse their own skills and talent and actually offer little in the way of real insights or instruction. This book not only offers a host of inventive tips, practical techniques and kit advice, but guides you into habits to continue your development as an artist. Cathy Johnson has a rare gift for encouraging the reader to try something and then make it their own, so that confidence and skill continue to grow. This is a book to read through, and continue to dip into; with 12 chapters packed with ideas and illustrations, it's a resource for every amateur artist.
