Hold on to your heart as you step into the world of Barbara Meyer's watercolor sketches. Smile out loud at her humorous and ironic observations of those pesky island birds who insist on occupying every post and piling, especially if it says "No Trespassing".

Beautiful and elegant little sketches, with sweet accompanying texts. One person found this helpful.

Subtitled How to Create a Delightful Journal of Your Travels at Home. Stecher advocates an interesting combination of tools: preliminary pencil sketches, f Subtitled "How to Create a Delightful Journal of Your Travels at Home and Abroad", this hard-to find book thinks clearly about the reasons people - artists and non-artists alike - should sketch in spare moments, and how they can do this effectively and without annoying their companions.

Throughout the book, wild trout and colorful people appear as comfortable residents of this relatively remote region in which the act of fly fishing seems as natural as eating and sleeping.

One thing I don’t like is the binding. Flexibinding isn’t something I like because it’s bigger and a little awkward to hold

However sometimes this is exactly what you need to get your butt in gear! I wouldn’t recommend this for a complete beginner, but if you’re big into sketching then this should end up on your bookshelf at some point. One thing I don’t like is the binding. Flexibinding isn’t something I like because it’s bigger and a little awkward to hold. In this case it helps a lot when you’re out & about, and for such a minor complaint I still think this is a great companion to urban sketching. Keep in mind this will help you understand spaces and how to accurately portray them.

Urban sketching is a tree with its middle chopped away to accommodate Seattle’s ubiquitous power lines. My sketches are not necessarily about special moments; they are moments made special because I sketched them. It’s about a couple of women chatting over coffee, or about workers roofing the house next door. It’s about an excavator filling a hole where a cherry tree once stood. Or the Tibetan monastery I drive by frequently that I couldn’t resist because it’s bright orange. Urban sketching is a string band performing at a local farmers’ market – or perhaps in.

Hold on to your heart as you step into the world of Barbara Meyer's watercolor sketches. Immerse yourself in the tranquility and serenity of every brush stroke as she shares her keenness for empty, wind-swept beaches, new-mown hay and rough -wooded barns. Smile out loud at her humorous and ironic observations of those pesky island birds who insist on occupying every post and piling, especially if it says "No Trespassing". This collection, gently lifted from her sketchbooks, represents the unique observations of one woman's 25-year journey through the timeless space that is the San Juan Islands. Pick up this book as often as you wish, to find a new corner in which to visit and escape. Take a deep breath and inhale the atmosphere. By Barbara Meyer. 1996. Paper Jam Publishing
