Books: Theory & Thoughts

These are books that I enjoy reading for inspiration and insight regarding art. They offer great insights into what it means to be an artist. Some are more practical, offering both art theory as well as practical tips on drawing and painting. These are the kind of books you can keep in your backpack for leisurely reading.
