Everything you need to know about transforming a rough sketch into a painting you can be proud of - a complete inspirational course for all those who love to sketch and paint.

Wendy Jelbert begins this book by asking the question 'why sketch?'. Her answer is that it is the best way to record inspirational scenes and to capture special moments. Through a series of step-by-step projects Wendy demonstrates how to develop your sketching skills and to transform a sketch into a finished painting. Everything is covered from capturing detail, composition and texture to making the most of your sketchbooks. Many of Wendy's finished paintings and the sketches that inspired them are included throughout the book.

Guild of Silk Painters

Spring 2018 - Issue 93

Books especially relevant to Silk Painting are limited, the majority of experienced Silk Painters have probably read them all. However, there are a vast range of art related books and with a bit of lateral thinking are most useful to silk painters.

This useful book tackles all aspects of sketching, covering the wide variety of pens, pencils available or just using whatever you have with you. Getting started, probably the biggest block we all have, and How to Sketch are motivating and lead to chapters which include step by step processes. 

Substituting silk paints or dyes is quite easy with a little practice, using No Flow and cold wax in place of masking fluids. The other items suggested, a candle, plastic wrap, piece of sponge, paper towel etc can also be used with silk paints or dyes. Mixing dye or paint with No Flow gives time to create the effects. 

Sketching takes practice, particularly outdoors, but once the tendency to self consciousness is overcome, sketching is most enjoyable and a small sketch book plus pencil can lurk quite happily in a pocket or handbag. A great plus is the accompanying photograph via your mobile phone.
