traveling sketch book
A traveling sketch book comes with me on all my travels. While we were in Strasbourg, France I enjoyed sketching this scene while we were on a boat on the canal.
My traveling sketchbook helps me to “look” and to really appreciate the sights around me and the ability to take time and sketch what I see. Simply sketching with a black micron in a black bound mole skin sketch book takes me traveling – even when the trip is over and I am back home. Do you travel with a journal or a sketchbook? Try it and you will be amazed at how much joy it will bring you. Besides, I always meet people who tell me “Oh, I can’t even draw a stick figure” – and I reply, “Well, I am so glad that I inspired you to start today!” I always tell my children or students that I teach art to, “getting started is half the battle, so start now!”
