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.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
