A Beginner’s Guide to Sketching the Everyday

Jen Russel – Smith

Paperback, 128 Pages


Learn how to get real enjoyment from sketching the world around you. In this accessible guide, largely self-taught artist Jen Russell-Smith takes beginners by the hand and breaks down the barriers we face around sketching, and shows you how to begin with quick, loose sketches building your confidence and skills to draw spontaneously.

With simple exercises that anyone can follow, Jen shows you how to sketch the things and places around you from life, and those further afield from photos, using simple watercolor techniques to add vibrancy to your work.
