It’s no secret that Peyton loves to draw. Art is her favorite subject in school and she is always drawing at home. So when I read about The Little Book of Sketching by Matt Andrews I knew it would be a hit with her. And I was right!
The Little Book of Sketching is filled with over 100 tips and trick on how to sketch anything and everything in your daily life. But I think Peyton’s favorite feature is the blank pages so she can practice sketching her own scenarios.
Matt Andrews created The Little Book of Sketching to help inspire those with a passion for drawing. He wanted to help them find inspiration and teach them how to look at mundane task into beautiful sketches.
He also gives the aspiring sketch artist tips and techniques on how to sketch everyday items. So, there’s some learning to be had to while enjoying this book. Peyton is always looking for new ways to draw things. She loves learning how to draw a tube television and how to add depth to a book. But her favorite thing she learned was how to draw a hot air balloon. We have them flying over our home daily when the weather is warmer so she can’t wait to try drawing a few of them when she sees them this spring.
