Over the past 15 years, and since the publication of her first book, A Rocky Mountain Sketchbook, well-known art instructor Donna Jo Massie has been developing her creative experiences in outdoor landscapes by traveling and painting in famously stunning locations in American mountain parks, from a monastery in the Chama Wilderness in northern New Mexico to the Alaska Marine Ferry on the Inside Passage. Throughout this fun and practical book, the reader is presented with illustrated pages from Donna Jos own sketchbooks, featuring step-by-step instructions; notes on watercolour palette selection and important techniques; pages devoted to clouds, rocks, trees, water and color schemes; a map with locations where the sketches were painted; location information that includes websites should you feel inspired to visit and paint these same landscapes; a supplies and tools page; and separate sketching pages, because, lets face it, you cant have too many sketchbooks!
