If you haven’t noticed… I have done very little daily sketching in my own sketchbook lately….so many things going on that I just don’t have the time at the moment. I am averaging one sketch (or sketching session) a week! Unbelievable I know!
As for my normal ‘trip prep’ – that is just not going to happen. I have been working all day (Saturday) and tonight am still doing some research for 2 projects… but very nicely it ties in to a little bit of trip prep, and that is thinking about how I will be filling my sketchbook for my upcoming planned trip to BCN and the UK.
I absolutely love the options of working in a larger size book- so I have ordered 4 A4 watercolour moleskine (think I will only take 3…but my calculations of previous efforts seem to indicate that I might need a 4th!). Tonight I was looking through my Singapore pages along the theme of composition and collected these journal type pages as examples of how great it is to have a larger size book.
Interestingly enough, my recent trip to Melbourne was less varied from a compositional point of view- more single page images that didn’t connect. I love the freedom of being able to work larger or to thread a story together of smaller moments.
Hmmm, got to start thinking about my BCN trip…..and try to squeeze in a wee sketch!
