Kurzbeschreibung

31. Juli 2003
More and more painters are travelling with the intention of capturing new experiences in their art. Whether doing so to keep a journal of their thoughts and feelings on the road or simply a visual record of the journey, the finished product is a work of art in itself. Watercolor Journeys provides readers with an "over the shoulder" look at the personal watercolour sketchbooks of internationally experienced artist Richard Schilling. It's packed with hundreds of tips and techniques born from a lifetime of painting-on-the-road experience. Schilling's actual journal pages are reproduced to clarify each and every lesson. Readers will also find solutions to the unexpected problems of journaling on the road, such as dealing with rain or insect attacks, or sketching the local populace without being noticed. Schilling's fascinating, sometimes humorous anecdotes will keep readers enthralled even when they aren't painting

Pressestimmen

"I can guarantee that I learned far more about this piazza from painting it than if I had just taken a photograph. Good thing I was able to do both! Photo references are not as good as painting on site, but if [there is not] time to paint while on location, a snapshot is the way to go. The important thing is to keep painting and practice as often as [one] can. Learning is what art is all about."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nice sketches, great stories 3. März 2011
Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Länge: 1:06 Minuten
The author is Richard Schilling, both a watercolour artist and a dentist. Because of his job, he gets many opportunities to travel and while traveling, he draws and records what he sees. On some trips, he and his wife served as dental missionaries in developing countries.

The watercolour sketches are very nice and evoke the holiday mood. They are accompanied by drawing tips and some step-by-step demonstrations. There are even tips for those who travel on tour buses (like he does on some trips), protecting your work from rain, keeping yourself safe in foreign places and other interesting stuff.

I like the stories that go behind each drawing. Schilling talks the places and their charm, the interesting people he meets, cultures he discovers and the experience of travel sketching. There are funny tales on him being chased by a village dog or on the people who look over his shoulders when he draws.

"We meet as strangers but part as friends," is how he regards encounters with those who stop to compliment his painting efforts. And it's pretty much what the book encapsulates - the joy and possibilities in travel sketching and life itself.

This is a lovely sketchbook I think anyone can enjoy, even if you're not into painting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Gift of Travel 31. Mai 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was a prize from a survey questionaire. I would have never bought the book for myself because I never thought that I would make a watercolor journal but after reading this book and seeing the illustrations, I was so inspired!!! I had an old sketch pad and headed outside with it and this book, then, sat down and sketched things around my home and town. This sketching brought so much personal emotion to me as I looked closely at all the beauty around me in my everyday life. I slowed down my life to see, to really see and now I am taking a journal with me everywhere. Thanks for opening my eyes with the wonderful book containing beautiful drawings and words!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Makes me want to travel!!! 26. Mai 2004
Von D. J. Starr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'd bought Watercolor Journeys prior to an overseas trip and it was so helpful and inspirational. I just loved the insights, memories, notes and of course, the charming pen & inks with watercolor illustrations. Lots of tips and ideas on materials, art supplies, travel tips and generally SUPPORT for an artistic way to chronicle your adventures. A wonderful book. Also, the dedication to his wife is a real zinger. Lucky gal!

4.0 von 5 Sternen My favorite watercolor book 17. März 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I've had this book for a couple of years and it is clearly my favorite since I read it over and over again. The author does a lot of ink sketching with watercolor washes, a style that I find I really like. Good tips on materials and methods, but the example paintings are what keeps bringing me back. I recommend this book highly.

Von Lightshower - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Watercolour Journeys is packed full of tbe artist's beautiful watercolour sketches and paintings along with dozens of ideas and notes on how to keep a travel journal. I collect artist's journals and this book is one of my favourites. Richard shares himself as he writes and draws. By the end you feel you know him.
