Everyone likes to doodle, right? Here’s a fun art exercise for those “down times” during your trip– create a doodle sketch of your surrounding landscape. You can do it while waiting for the plane, on a train, sitting at the beach or resting on a park bench. No fancy art supplies are needed, just a pen and paper… so let’s get doodling!
Here’s a quick “how to” for creating your own landscape doodle – just 2 simple steps. First, take a pencil and create a very light (and quick) outline of the major portions of your landscape. Second, start doodling! Begin doodling the main portions of your landscape, then continue to fill in the rest. A doodle can be anything you’d like: circles, lines, stars, hearts, triangles, squares– all is fair game. You can even put in hidden treasures in the picture (like Where’s Waldo) for fun. Perhaps hide some doodles of memories from your location– a taco from Tuscon, a coffee cup in Seattle, a croissant from Paris!
Here is my view and doodle landscape from the beautiful Sabino Canyon in Tuscon, Arizona.
Look forward to seeing your doodle landscapes from far off destinations!
