Author(s): Cathy Johnson
Based on her own 40 years' experience in keeping an artist's journal, Cathy Johnson knows that an artist's creative life can benefit from written and visual explanations and experiments. Over the course of this book, readers benefit from the tips, techniques and exercises that will make their artist's journals their own. Readers learn how to use their journals to celebrate any occasion or milestone, work through a problem or creative block, plan future works, sketch from life and experiment with new materials or techniques.
