A beginner's guide to sketching the everyday by Jen Russell-Smith.


Most children draw. Before we can write, even, we scribble and sketch and create. But somehow that gets lost as we get older. We learn that 'Being An Artist' is hard and complicated, and that there are technical rules to choosing colour and perfecting your perspective. This book is here to remind you of the joy you once found in creating, scribbling, getting something down on paper and that it’s really about the process and nothing to do with how technically brilliant the finished ‘artwork’ is.

In this accessible guide, largely self-taught artist Jen Russell-Smith takes beginners by the hand and breaks down the barriers we face around sketching. She shows you how to begin with quick, loose sketches building your confidence and skills to draw spontaneously, with nothing more than the things around you for inspiration. With simple exercises that anyone can follow, Jen shows you how to sketch the things and the places around you from life, using simple watercolour techniques to add vibrancy to your work.
