Quick Capture Video

I made this little video for those that have signed up for my Travel Sketching workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico, so I thought I’d share it here.

5 minutes is all it takes to capture a scene full of color and life. (Pardon the scratchy pen sounds in this quickly-thrown-together video!)

The key is to focus on movement and gesture with both line and color, and to trust that your drawing will communicate what you experience without tight details.

    Inspiring to watch your process. I actually turned up the volume to hear the pen scratching…very reassuring to hear the sound and watch the movement.

    Great to watch the process of how you do it..! Looks simple but am sure it’s not. It’s all in the strokes.
