In this inspirational guide, renowned artist Albany Wiseman illustrates the value of sketching and of keeping a sketchbook, by presenting his finest work built up throughout a lifetime of sketching. Informal and intimate in approach, his book will inspire and encourage readers to learn by his example as he provides a rare glimpse over his shoulder and describes his working practices. The opening chapter looks at many different uses and values of a sketchbook - most importantly to experiment, explore and have fun! Themed chapters - on people, animals, interiors, landscapes and architecture - are illustrated by a wealth of examples in a variety of media. The sketches are accompanied by descriptive and practical text on methods and materials, tips to highlight specific aspects of the subjects, and extended captions which describe the situation, inspiration and techniques. Each chapter also features a double-page spread in which a collection of sketches are worked up to a finished painting. For all aspiring and practising artists this book will prove an indispensable source of inspiration and practical advice.
