FIELD SKETCHING AND THE EXPERIENCE OF LANDSCAPE. Janet Swailes. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. 432 pp. with 435 ills. (314 col.). 25 x 19 cm. LC 2015-47119 ISBN 9781138013940 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 171271. Publisher's description: The act of field sketching allows us to experience the landscape first-hand -- rather than reliance upon plans, maps and photographs at a distance, back in the studio. Aimed primarily at landscape architects, Janet Swailes takes the reader on a journey through the art of field sketching, providing guidance and tips to develop skills from those starting out on a design course, to those looking to improve their sketching. Combining techniques from landscape architecture and the craft and sensibilities of arts practice, she invites us to experience sensations directly out in the field to enrich our work: to look closely at the effects of light and weather; understand the lie and shapes of the land through travel and walking; and to consider lines of sight from the inside out as well as outside in. Full color throughout with examples, checklists and case studies of other sketchers' methods, this is an inspirational book to encourage landscape architects to spend more time in the field and reconnect with the basics of design through drawing practice.
