5.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" for anyone sketching on location
Reviewed in the United States on 10 November 2019
The Urban Sketching Handbook series is flat out the best and most encyclopedic reference for anyone sketching, drawing, or painting on location. The latest title to join the series, Stephanie Bower's 101 Sketching Tips doesn't disappoint either. First off, ignore the title because Bower shares far more than 101 tips and strategies. Illustrations from Urban Sketchers hailing from every point on the globe are included to help readers clearly visualize the concepts being shared, including many of Bower's own fine sketches.

As a professional illustrator and a visual art educator for four decades, I have seen a lot of books offering advice; only a few of them have measured up to the hype. Happily, this is one of them. What I really appreciate about this book is the way it's organized into "Keys" - groups of concepts that are related. Thumbing through the book, there are (naturally enough) strategies with many readers will already be familiar. I regularly found myself reading a tip and thinking to myself, "Oh, right! Why haven't I tried that in a while?" Being reminded of things we already know (but don't always put into practice!) is a really good thing. And then there are those brand new ideas that I feel like smacking myself in the head over: "Now why the heck did I never think of doing things THAT way?" There are plenty of gold nuggets sprinkled throughout, and enough to make this a valuable resource for most any artist working in situ.

For those who like to carry stuff with them into the field, I also find the books in this series to be really handy in that one will easily fit into the hip pocket of my Levi's!
