Book:'Drawing & Sketching' by Adrian Hill
This Edition Published By:Blandford Press, 1960s/1970s

Sketching is important in forms of art, and I wish I had more time for it, but even though just now I don't have much time for much creativity due to the coronavirus (home schooling, cooking and the like takes most of my time and energy) but I still make time for a little sketching, it is where it all starts.

Whilst Adrian Hill's books are more about some form of representation sketching, they are also about exploring and recording for future work - in his case watercolours and oils, in my case, my modest wood engravings. Some might think them dated, or lacking 'modern' accompanying illustrations and examples, but to me the text here is the most important thing and from time to time I refresh my memory of them.

They are usually available fairly cheaply from second hand suppliers, and as a bonus come as hard backs, which I prefer.

I'd like to be able to review this more, but time doesn't allow me to at present, but I did want to include it here as it is an important book to me.
