Dare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the Go by Felix Scheinberger - Book Review

33673329Dare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the Go by Felix Scheinberger
My rating 3 of 5 stars
Published September 19th 2017 by Watson-Guptill

An inspirational, instructional, and visually stimulating guide to sketching and drawing. Dare to Sketch is filled with practical tips about which materials to use, a variety of subject matter ranging from easy to more challenging, and wisdom about overcoming creative blocks and fear of making mistakes. 

A whimsical beginner's guide to sketching, covering all of the important basics: what kind of notebook to buy, what drawing materials to use, ideas for subject matter, and daily exercises. Includes inviting, inspirational, and idiosyncratic tips (don't start on the first page of your sketchbook!), Dare to Sketch is gorgeously illustrated with the author's unique and contemporary art style.

It's a great motivational book. Just get out and go see what you can create!
It doesn't come off as a traditional how-to book it's more advice and tips. It really left me inspired to go out and try to sketch more. And definitely gave me a new outlook on what a sketch book can be.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
