I have been doing quite well with my routine of fast sketching thus far. In fact, I’m going to post a bunch of sketches today! I’m finding fast sketching both relaxing and rewarding, especially knowing that I have photos to back up my sketches for potential paintings later on. Amazingly, each of the sketches I’m posting took no longer than 10 minutes, with many taking only a minute or two. (Cheers to David Rankin for his fast sketching techniques!) I’m planning on painting on the trip too, but haven’t yet haven’t found the right moment to do that. Perhaps today, when we head over to see some Volcanoes.
Here’s a small travelogue of sketches (with a few photos) from the past few days.
Cheers to all!
