For my final installment of my New Zealand sketches I thought I would share lots of travel sketching strategies and tips while going through my sketchbook. So instead of traditional series of day by day articles (as I did on the 2014 trip to Brazil) I thought it would be fun to try a video version. I tried to go as quickly as I could, but it is still 25 minutes in length, so you might want to grab a cuppa before you start!
If you can’t see the embeddedd video please click the top image or here.
In the video I cover a number of topics including
- how I reviewed and adjusted sketches that I knew at the time were not quite right,
- how I made decisions as to what media and approach to use in different situations while travelling,
- how I fitted my sketching into the day,
- why I choose to leave some sketches incomplete,
- and much more!
I hope you enjoy it!
