5 Star #Review of Sketch by France Belleville-Van Stone

An inspirational manual for integrating sketching into daily life for artists and non-artists alike.
Urban sketching--the process of sketching on the go as a regular practice--is a hot trend in the drawing world. In this aspirational guide, French artist France Belleville-Van Stone offers motivation to move beyond the comfort zone, as well as instruction on turning rough sketches into finished work. By sharing her own creative process, which includes sketching by hand and digitally, Belleville-Van Stone emboldens readers to craft a method of their own and devote more time to art, even if it's just 10 minutes a day. "Sketch Your World" will inspire artists both established and aspiring to rethink their daily practice, sketch for the pure joy of it, and document their lives and the world around them. 
 About the Author

FRANCE BELLEVILLE-VAN STONE is a self-taught French artist who loved cars and drawing as a child. As an adult, she studied English instead of going to art school, and became a public school teacher. She has been living and teaching full-time in the U.S. since late 2004.



Inspiration is the top thing in this book.  Its not so much full of instructions (there are some). 

My 10 year old really loved this book.  She loved to draw and thought that this book was awesome.  It gave her the inspiration to start drawling everyday things and not just My Little Ponys. 

Now she sits for hours at a time and draws everything from trees to people to buildings.  She always has paper with her now.  This book has shown her that if she wants to become very good at drawling she needs to get out of her comfort zone and start working at it.
