Travel Sketching Tips

This is the how-to-book aimed at the people who want to draw beautiful landscapes encountered during the trip and take records of the journey with the sketching illustrations.

The travelling destination can be a mine of motifs for the people who like drawing. However we usually have a limited time to spend on drawing or on only one illustration since there are so many other activities as well.

This book gives plenty of tips about how to reduce the time of drawing in using a pen and water colors as well as how to determine the good composition, or how nicely and boldly omit the process of drawing or coloring to capture many motifs as possible in short time. It also offers the ideas how to arrange these illustrations to make the souvenirs gift.
Many sample of sketching drawn by the author are also showcased with a little column, as examples for the travel sketching.
