Back Cover Information

In this book Mari gives six simple but effective tips to help launch you into the wonderful world of sketching. Along with some of her workshop participants, she shares an intimate way to record travel experiences, one that requires you to slow down and capture the moment. The approach presented in this book is not about doing "good" drawing or painting. It is about letting the hand record what the eye sees with whatever tool is available, without rules or recipes. All you need is your hand, your eyes, your heart and the desire to travel differently.

Author Mari Le Glatin KeisAbout the Author

Mari Le Glatin Keis was born and raised in Brittany, France. After graduating in printmaking from "I' Ecole des Beaux Arts" in Paris, she went to South America to draw plants and flowers. She has been sketching ever since. For the past 20 years, she has dedicated herself to book illustrations, and has been leading sketching workshops in Europe, Mexico and the Pacific Northwest, sharing her passion for recording 'life as it is'.
