Sketching Outdoors in Spring

by Jim Arnosky

Another lovely book in which the artist-naturalist shares his pleasure in sketching the world around him. Two typefaces define the dual purpose of the booklarge print paragraphs describe Arnosky's personal experience in sketching trees, brooks, emerging spring flowers, and woodland animals; small print notes give general suggestions on drawing technique.
