Book Review: Venice: A Watercolor Travel Journal


Here's another beautiful sketchbook by Joaquin Gonzalez Dorao (website | blog | Facebook).

This one's self published in 2013, printed by CreateSpace. Paperback. 62 pages total. About A4 size.

It's a travelogue sketchbook filled with snapshots of Venice in beautiful watercolour sketches. There are the beautiful buildings by water, gondolas, cafes, people and the intricate architecture of the whole place.

I like how he pulls out the little details for more focus, it could be a cup of coffee, statues, hanging lamps, or the fish sold at the markets. There are captions but too brief though. I would love to read more about the place, or even about his adventures while drawing there.

It's a nice addition to the other Venice sketchbooks that I have, namely A Week In Venice by Liz Steel, The Venice Sketchbook by Fabrice Moireau.

Venice watercolor travel journal is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
