A potent combination of art, science, and boundless enthusiasm, The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling from John Muir Laws is an art instruction book and a how-to guide for becoming a better artist and a more attentive naturalist. In straightforward text complemented by step-by-step illustrations, dozens of exercises lead the hand and mind through creating accurate reproductions of plants and animals as well as landscapes, skies, and more. Laws provides clear, practical advice at every step of the process for artists at every level, from the basics of choosing supplies to advanced techniques. The book's advice will improve techniques for those of rudimentary artistic abilities and already accomplished artists: with its emphasis on seeing, learning, and feeling, this book will prove valuable—even revelatory—to anyone interested in the natural world.
Author of The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling John Muir Laws says, "I draw and work in my nature journal for three reasons: to see, to remember and to stimulate curiosity. These abilities will be reinforced for you, too, every time you sit down to journal—and you don’t have to be good at drawing. The benefit of journaling is not limited to what you produce on the page; it is, rather, found in your experience and how you think along the way." ISBN: 1597143154
