This book offers one the chance to look at what these very good artist do before the do their very good work. There are clues here for the rest of us. The book is organized by artist name, with several pages written by the artist themselves along with photos of their journal or sketch book pages. These are so enjoyable. For visual learners, These peeks are worth a thousand words. The comments by the artists are enriching in other ways, not just "how to", they describe their creative habits, and where they find their joy. The reader can enjoy a casual relationship with this book, opening anywhere to look at one artist and be encouraged, inspired, helped.

I teach a sketchbook course every fall semester at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado. One of the goals of this course is to get students drawing and to help them open their minds to what is possible in a sketchbook. This book is a great resource because it does just that by showing the pages of sketchbooks from other artists in a great format that is well designed.

Like SBC 1 it has helped me "loosen up"in my sketch book. I use it to explore ideas and develop ideas that may not go anywhere, but that does not matter. It is important to do something, anything, and let it go where it may.
This message comes through loud and strong with both these books. A valuable asset for anyone wanting to do any type of creative endevour, wether for professional, study or personal (the best of all) development.

I have both Sketchbook 1 and Sketchbook 2 and I love them both. I am fairly new to sketchbooking but certainly not to painting,I do both oils and watercolor. These books will open your eyes to all sorts of your visual experiences, not just grand tours of Europe but everyday scenes in your own backyard. Either of these books will introduce you to a whole new world just waiting to be painted.

I loved this book. It gave me valuable insight to the drawings of professional artists which they are just relaxing in their sketchbooks.

My only criticism of this book is there aren't enough sketches that go on to show the final result or painting from that sketch. Also, would like the illustrations to be larger. Otherwise, it's been helpful.

Bought this as a lightning deal based on the product description and cover which implies that it would be helpful for learning from the master artists. My teenage daughter quickly realized that there are no sketches nor descriptions to assist those who want to hone their skills. Instead it is the various artists' thoughts on what it means to create and what their goals are when they draw.

Ok, but if editors add those artists' one or two final finished pieces, which it will be better let reader know what they doing.
