Enjoying the walk along the line,
This review is from: Taking a Line for a Walk: 1000 Miles on Foot - Le Havre to Rome (Hardcover)
This delightful little hardback book gave me ideas to enhance my travel sketching techniques. Chris uses a variety of approaches with his handful of sketching implements. I was particularly attracted to his work as he reached Italy in his travels. I even carried this wee book on a recent sketching holiday to Turkey for inspiration, and even sought out a fine brown pen in the back streets of Istanbul to trial the effect which pleased me - especially when drawing old buildings or ruins.
It is worth taking the time to decipher Chris' squiggles, as you walk with him through the sights, sounds and smells of the streets and countryside, experiencing what he feels. I read it from cover to cover.
I recommend it to anyone who enjoys quick travel sketching or who wants a flavour of France, Switzerland and Italy.
