Sturdy covers and a lay-flat sewn binding make field sketching easy, and artists of all levels will appreciate the sixty-four blank pages and sixteen toned pages of high quality paper suitable for pen, pencil, and light washes. In addition, this revised and expanded edition of the journal includes tips, techniques, and advice from master nature journalist and teacher Jack Laws that will help all nature journalers hone their craft. Reference illustrations to solve common nature-drawing problems, tools for measuring and quantifying observations, and suggestions for field activities make this sketchbook an essential tool for nature study.
