Pack you bags and get ready to fly! Aren’t we all always excited to travel? We think of the never-ending food to eat and beautiful places to take in. When we arrive at our destination, landscapes and scenes unfold before our eyes. We hold up our phones and cameras, off we go snapping away! But wait! Is there anything else that we could do?
Quick Sketching is the key to go! Do a sketch of your surrounding, we aren’t asking you to go into major details of texture and materials. Just the simple outline of the place, do a sketch in your book and bring your hand drawn memories wherever you go. How do you do it? Drawing and Sketching is the key!
Train your eye in observation, look at the outline, shape and size of the surroundings. Regardless if it’s the mountains, lakes, trees or buildings……observation is the most important thing.
Once you are done observing, practise in your sketching book. Because practise makes perfect!
Quick sketching is all about perspective, understand what’s 1 point perspective and what’s 2 point perspective. Once you get the idea of perspective, slowly add it into your sketching outline, and this is when you add texture and materials to your drawing.
速写（quick sketch )顾名思义是快速写生的意思，是一种对照实物迅速写生勾勒的方法，当你去旅游时，面对美丽的大自然景色，除了赞叹、拍照、惊呆、还能做什么？
Once you have mastered your quick sketch skill, what a joy! One more thing to pack in your bag, but your take-away will be worth the weight!
