Ashley Jackson's Watercolour Sketches

Ashley Jackson's Watercolour Sketches is a well curated selection of landscape watercolours and a nice glimpse inside the artist's sketchbook. Due out 30th Oct 2019 (but possibly delayed) from Pen & Sword, it's 160 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats.

This is a nice selection of annotated sketches. The artist has a warm and personal style of writing in the annotations which feel more like a conversation over a pint than anything else. He often describes the weather at the time of the painting, or about features of the countryside or about the composition itself.

This would make a lovely gift for an artist or for studying in one's own painting and sketching.

Five stars. A valuable and illuminating glimpse inside the artistic composition and process.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
