Book Review: Working with Color (The Urban Sketching Handbook)

Working with Color (The Urban Sketching Handbook) - 01


This is the fifth addition to the Urban Handbook series. The author this time is urban sketcher, painter and teacher Shari Blaukopf whose work I'm a big fan of.

This 112-page paperback features tips by various artists on using colours. There are plenty of beautiful sketchers and paintings and examples. The text is insightful. This is a book, together with the other books from a series, that you can easily pick off the shelf to flip through for inspiration.

This book is not a step by step instructional book. It's one that hopes to inspire and introduce you to new ways of working and playing with colours. There are many suggestions on how you can experiment.

I highly recommend this to people who love urban sketching and colours. And definitely check out Shari Blaukopf's blog for more inspiration.

The Urban Sketching Handbook: Working with Color: Techniques for Using Watercolor and Color Media on the Go (Urban Sketching Handbooks) is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | AU | JP | CN) and Book Depository
