A practical and inspirational guide to help embroiderers and textile artists make the most of sketchbooks to inform their creative work. The artist’s sketchbook offers an exciting platform to explore a host of mixed media techniques. Using a combination of paper, textiles, found objects, pencil, ink and paint, Shelley Rhodes shows how a sketchbook can act as an illustrated diary, a visual catalogue of a journey or experience or as a starting point for more developed work. Whether out on location or in the studio, Rhodes explores every stage of the creative process, from initial inspiration to overcoming the fear of a blank page, manipulating paper and images and incorporating ‘found’ objects to build a sketchbook that is both beautiful and inspiring. Sketchbook Explorations is the ideal companion for everyone from the beginner to the more experienced artist looking for exciting techniques to expand their repertoire in mixed media. The book explores: Why work in sketchbooks? The importance and joy of working in a sketchbook. Ways of recording and investigating ideas that inspire. Techniques in mixed media from found objects and layers to three-dimensional sketching. Creating on location. Using electronic devices to develop ideas.

In an era which has seen many forms of artistic creation becoming digitized, the practice of drawing, in the traditional sense, has remained constant. However, many publications about the relationship between drawing and thinking rely on discipline-dependent distinctions to discuss the activity's function.

Instead of the finite event of producing an artifact, drawi.

This volume illustrates Turner's watercolor sketches, early studies for finished works, and finished and unfinished drawings. Although many of the designs appear to be abstract, Turner was not creating non-representational images but was employing a rapid "visual shorthand". These glowing, fluid pictures remain among Turner's most popular works. Turner's Watercolour Explorations explains the creative process that underlies these images and the interpretive techniques which have been used to analyze them. Many of their subjects are identified and the pictures are arranged for the first time according to their subject-matter and historical purpose.
