For me travel sketching is much more than doing one or two ‘proper’ sketches each day. It’s about creating a narrative and recording everything I do in multiple sketches (in a variety of styles) and text.
It’s normally hard to do this when I’m teaching, but the Palladian Odyssey is an exception. During the week the participants can watch me sketch outside the formal workshop sessions (at meals, during guided tours etc) and design my pages to create an interesting and varied sketchbook. I love trying to make beautiful spreads even though some of the sketches are fairly rough, working thumbnails. It’s really fun to be able to share this process with the groups during the tour.
I hope that you will enjoy this video!
Mike and I have been overwhelmed by the response this year!
