Finally - a watercolor book for the rest of us!

Despite the seemingly hundreds of books found on watercolor technique, very few even mention, let alone focus on, using watercolor as a sketching medium on location. Sure, there are plenty of books about plein air painting, but even those emphasize trying to duplicate the studio setup - a proper easel, stretching and mounting paper ahead of time, etc. - to produce a finished painting (the kind you frame and hang on a wall, hopefully in a gallery).

As an urban sketcher, I've been frustrated by these books. Of course, good technique is good technique, and I still learn about using watercolors from them. But what about watercolor sketches - the kind that are never meant to leave the sketchbook and instead have the sole purpose of visually documenting a few minutes of my day? Books on that use of watercolors are few and far between.

Happily, Sketching, by Alwyn Crawshaw, part of the Harper Collins 30 Minute Art series, is one of those books. Using nothing more than a pencil and a simple setup of watercolor paints, the author gives numerous examples of sketches - brief, fresh images mostly made on location in less than 30 minutes each (many in as few as 10). Every lesson emphasizes distilling and simplifying a scene, avoiding picky details and capturing the essence of what you see. He gives tips on how to sketch moving objects, animals and people, and even how to sketch when you, yourself, are on a moving vehicle.

Actual watercolor technique is covered perfunctorily in a few pages, so if you really want to improve your watercolor painting skills, pick up one of those hundreds of other books instead.

If I have any complaints, it's the one that other Amazon.com reviews have mentioned: The book's format is so small (6" x 7 ¾") that some of the sketch reproductions are tiny. On the other hand, in almost all cases, the originals are no larger than 8 ½" x 11", and fast sketches are, by definition, small, so perhaps the format is meant to mimic the size of work that most sketchers are making.

I wanted a book that would teach me the basics of sketching on the go, maybe with a few exercises that demonstrate technique. This book is exactly that. It covers not only quick pencil sketching but also watercoloring your work, using minimal tools and materials. The presentation is breezy, with each topic explained across a two-page spread illustrated by the author. The serious-minded beginner who actually does the projects explained in this book will level up his/her skills and gain a better understanding of what makes a picture.

Wonderful book full of good information for developing watercolor & sketching skills. I especially love the "Quick tips" throughout the book. This small book ranks in my top 10 favorite watercolor sketching books. Buy it and enjoy!

Great instructions! I learned so much from this book! I understand how to sketch and use water color washes over them! Definitely would recommend this book!

The little book was easy to understand and has good illustrations. It is a great reference book for all levels of artists.
is okay, but i would have liked more specific suggestions actually for the place i'm living, which is very much like parts of England and Wales, i'm interested in getting down the basics rapidly to work up later. i like this author, and think he has much to offer, this might not be his best teaching book, but there are others that are wonderful
