Format: Paperback
Jude Siegal writes about how a painter observes, how shadows and mists interact with colors and shapes, and how taking time to absorb the beauty of place enriches our lives. Her ability to appreciate details and broad vistas and her expressive word of language and color make this a great book for writers and admirers of the Pacific Northwest as well as painters.

This book is an excellent introduction to Nature Journaling. The author sets out her method in easy-to-understand steps, taking the mystery out of buying paper, brushes, and paints, and how to set up a palette, make a palette map, and get started drawing the natural world.

The illustrations are Jude Siegel's own vibrant drawings and paintings. This book made me reach for my pen and watercolors!

I was revisiting my hometown region (Pacific Northwest) and came across Jude Seigel's book. Although I'd never painted before (well, since grade school) I immediately had to have this book and before I left Seattle, I'd invested over $100 in Winsor and Newton paints and brushes.

Since then I've purchased other books (and many more paints...!), but still find myself gravitating to Pacific Northwest Nature Sketchbook for the casual, authentic, do-it-now spirit in which it was written. Jude's style embraces every level of artist--you do what you can and the more you do it the better you get--but the message is clear: everything you create is precious and represents your vision at a single moment in time.

Thanks, Jude, for this inspiration and for a lovely, timeless book.

Jude teaches through this book that nature is where you find it. Sure, taking in an amazing vista in the Pacific NW is a inspiration to be sure. But you take away the feeling that your own backyard, kitty asleep on the couch, local park, birds at the window or just some stones in your pocket hold just as much promise and beauty. She makes you feel like this is something you owe to yourself, just create for the sake of the happiness it brings. She urges you to not get caught up in the "correct way" or whether or not it will ever hang on a wall, just look, listen, feel and put it on paper the way only you know how. It will be just perfect! What a fun approach, full of freedom, acceptance and promise. Only you can capture the moment like only you see it. Very rewarding to read, see her sketches/paintings AND to practice the approach.

Great little book for encouragement and how to details on keeping a nature sketch journal. The person to whom I gave the book loved it and has started a sketchbook using pen and ink as well as pencil drawings, then adding watercolor to the sketch. Basic elements covered.

I worked thru many of the pages of this book. I took it with me on a vacation to Paradise (Mt Rainier), and it inspired me to take a few afternoons of stopping to see my surroundings in a new way. The river of wildflowers coming down the hillside, the way the clouds sat over the mountain. Then, trying to capture the colors and the contrasts..... A great introduction to the northwest palette.

This book was full of helpful information in setting out to develop one's own sketchbook. It also was tremendously encouraging.
