Spanish to English translations [PRO]
Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting
Spanish term or phrase: bloc
I am translating 2 two part books on watercolours and oils, with techniques in one stapled section and practice in a second spiral section. The book title uses the word "Bloc", in the sense of a sketch pad (it does not contain blank pages however) or pad or notebook. I cannot come up with a word or phrase that sums this up without sounding strange or too wordy. Help appreciated!

workbook


Explanation:
If it is a section in which to practice, maybe with outline drawings or sample colour mixes, it's a workbook. Maybe you could specify what's actually in the spiralled section.

OK, it seemed that the student could actually get some practice, but evidently this is not a workbook. It would be more like a tutorial.

Notes to answerer
Asker: It has details on technique and materials in the first "bloc", then step by step painting guides in the second "Bloc". Workbook seems good, but is it a problem that there is no actual blank paper to work on? Thanks!

Guide


Explanation:
Given your description of the book and the fact that there are no blank pages, I think I would just call it a guide? Guide to painting and drawing, or even visual guide.

Explanation:
Hi Sarah:If it's a book about how to draw/paint using sketch pads: the title could be something like ""Sketchpad Drawing/Painting".
