Cover title.
"In this first publication of a 92-page sketchbook used by David Hockney in April 2004, the publishers have omitted pages 19-20, which were left blank by the artist."--Colophon.
"In recent years David Hockney has returned to England to paint the landscape of his childhood in East Yorkshire. Although his passionate interest in new technologies has led him to develop a virtuoso drawing technique on an iPad, he has also been accompanied outdoors by the traditional sketchbook, an invaluable tool as he works quickly to capute the changing light and fleeting effects of the weather. Executed in watercolour and ink, the panoramic scenes have the spatial complexity of finished paintings - the broad sweep of sky or road, the patchwork tapestry of land - yet convey the immediacy of Hockney's impressions" --Dust cover.
