Laws is known for his beautiful bird guides, but he's also a top notch instructor with a boundless enthusiasm for sharing his love of art and nature with others. This book is a comprehensive course in nature journaling that’s comprehensive in its scope without being overwhelming. If you've been meaning to try nature journaling, this is your excuse to dive in.

— Katherine


The ultimate guide to nature drawing and journaling A potent combination of art, science, and boundless enthusiasm, the latest art instruction book from John Muir Laws (The Laws Guide to Drawing Birds) is a how-to guide for becoming a better artist and a more attentive naturalist. In straightforward text complemented by step-by-step illustrations, dozens of exercises lead the hand and mind through creating accurate reproductions of plants and animals as well as landscapes, skies, and more. Laws provides clear, practical advice for every step of the process for artists at every level, from the basics of choosing supplies to advanced techniques. While the book's advice will improve the skills of already accomplished artists, the emphasis on seeing, learning, and feeling will make this book valuable--even revelatory--to anyone interested in the natural world, no matter how rudimentary their artistic abilities.
