“Holds strong crossover appeal among environmentalism, earth sciences, hiking, and art instruction.” --Heather Halliday, Library Journal

“This beautiful art book will teach you how to be ‘still, quiet, and attentive…to organize your thoughts, piece together answers, and ask richer questions.’ The overall goal is to stimulate your curiosity, and you won't find a better guide.” --

5.0 out of 5 stars from an artist point of view
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 June 2021
Nice to have a different take on drawing. This guide provides lots of useful information on how to keep a journal. It takes doing a day to day journal to a much more informative level and worthwhile reference. There is so much information, beautifully illustrated, in an easy to understand way that I found I could dip in and out and I have found really useful tips that I have used in my own work as an artist.
The book has undoubtedly heightened my observing skills and made my notating stronger.
I am happy to recommend this book, so much so that I am ordering another as a present to a keen birdwatcher.
