As I get closer to my departure date, I find myself mentally checking and rechecking over my gear. My art supplies have been the most fun to finalize and I have spent quite a bit of time learning new techniques and practicing old skills. My sketches are becoming more and more elaborate as I become increasingly excited for the trip.
I had fun sketching this one--I am trying to increase my drawing speed, so I can draw while we're traveling, but I'm usually quite slow! With this sketch I was trying to focus on getting the feel of the line and the general idea of what I wanted, instead of being precise as I usually am apt to do.
