 Picture
Publisher: Melior Books, 1946 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Soft cover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall Text is in both English and Spanish. "Sketching is probably the most fascinating and enriching experience one can have - it is an avocation practiced universally by both amateurs and professionals. What one paints and what medium one uses depends largely on where and how much time one has for that particular sketching trip. This book is based on the water color medium plus pencils, etc., because they ahve proved to be the most practical especially on longer trips such as this one by the author which took in fourteen countries. But whatever medium one prefers and whether one paints around the corner or travels to foreign countries there is always an enjoyable adventure awaiting. It is for this purpose that this book is written to encourage others to see, learn and enjoy by sketching.." Well illustrated by the author. 48 pages with index. Oversized softcover. Book is in GOOD condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.
