This pocket guide provides an introduction to field sketching/journaling and three foundational drawing techniques ideal for nature-based sketching.


Don’t worry if you are not trying to make “fine art.”  Without much training, it is still possible to render what you see in a way that informs and pleases you.


You'll get started with the fun, whacky techniques that professional artists use to warm up, move past the blank page, and channel observation into discovery and delight.


For more about how even very messy, simple sketching can be a helpful tool for resting and refocusing, see this blog post of mine. See that same post for more about how art and science have been connected through the ages.
