Summary, etc.:
"A comprehensive guide to quick sketching of landscapes. 5 Minute Sketching-Landscapes is about drawing what you see, mostly in settings away from the "modern world." It's especially appropriate for travelers. There are 60 exercises for new and aspiring artists which can be done in any number of locations and as often as desired. All will help to hone skills, increase speed, and help to promote a daily drawing routine. Sketchers will learn how look at a scene and deconstruct its elements quickly - for example, see natural features as colored geometric shapes; locate the source of light; divide the scene into planes (e.g., close, mid, far) for accurate perspective and color values; and note landmarks that support their observations. Readers will build an instinctive focus that pays off in speed and results. Experienced artists will refresh their skills, eliminate bad habits, and discover new ways of seeing. Landscapes, of course, feature color, and this is covered in some detail and with expert guidance thro.
