Studio and travel life

Last week’s blog explored the value of habits and thumbnails … here are some more: quick doodles that form strong memories when travelling, not just for their content; it’s looking at the subject to draw it that cements an awareness for essential character and detail. A friend never takes notes when someone is lest he misses something else said: he just jots point form lists of what was covered … these are my visual point forms.

These small sketches merely a few inches big were done flying in a small airplane in Arizona, from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. I see them years later and immediately remember not only the strange land formations but all the colours of that spectacular trip.
