REVIEW – Dare to Sketch by Felix Scheinberger

I have found this to be a terrific book, full of bite-sized inspirational lessons that you can use in your sketchbook straight away.

Scheinberger’s use of expressive line and restrained colour is delightful in its loose details.

Of particular interest is the section on Travel Drawing – I love that he not only points out things to look for and draw while travelling, but also that the interactions with locals are quite different when drawing, and often more memorable.

I want to take this book with me every day at the moment.

Dare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the Go

Urban Watercolor Sketching: A Guide to Drawing, Painting, and Storytelling in Color

This is just one of many books I plan to review this year – see you for the next one 🙂


About Anna Battle

I’m an artist, guide, mother and a very handy Art Friend! 

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went live in 2015.

In 2016 my book, Painting Party, was published (it’s still available on Amazon).

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence. 

I invite you to join me and see the world through the eyes of an artist!

If not now, when?
