Unlock the Beauty of Travel with a Sketchbook

Unlock the Beauty of Travel with a Sketchbook

by GJ Gillespie, founder of Leda Art Supply

Are you looking to get creative during your next vacation? Why not bring along a sketch book and capture the beauty of your new surroundings! Travel art journaling is becoming increasingly popular among artists, as it allows them to record memories, document trip highlights, and see details in unfamiliar scenes that might otherwise be missed.

Famous artists have long used their art journals on outings, retreats, traveling and hiking for inspiration. To get started on your own journey of creativity, here are some tips: 

  • Make small preliminary drawings in the field before starting a finished piece; 
  • Invest in a professional quality sketchbook with fine art paper for clear lines and color definition; 
  • Bring along a range of materials such as pens, pencils and paints that suit your style; 
  • Take time to observe the details of your surroundings for maximum enjoyment and inspiration; 
  • Create a series of drawings to document highlights from each day.

With these tips in mind, you can get started on your own travel journal! Taking time to draw allows appreciation of a new place, and maximizes memories of a special vacation. So grab that sketch book and start documenting your journey. 

You'll never forget how amazing it was.  Happy sketching!
