Synopsis: It can happen at any moment - A powerful light effect. A telling gesture. A unique posture.
When you're struck by am image or impression you want to use in your art, you must record it - quickly! - before it's gone. But what's an artist to do when there's no time for a carefully rendered drawing or even a good photo? Some quick field sketching, that's what!
This book will revolutionize the way you sketch. David Rankin reveals the simple secrets to creating quick, impressionistic field sketches from life - and how to work with them once you're back in the studio. With the tools and methods described here, you'll be surprised how easy it is to draw rapid visuals of landscapes, animals, figures, crowds, any subject.
So the next time you're taken by a sudden, fleeting inspiration, you can capture it. And make the most of it in your art.
