Travel Sketchbook – Pinhole And Pinhole Accessories

Drawing

Here is another drawing from my travel sketchbook. For this trip I am going to bring only one pinhole camera: my trusty Terrapin Bijou. The size is perfect for travel and I love the economy of 6 x 4.5. I am honestly probably bringing too much film with me. I am doubting I will go through all of those rolls. But you never know!

I am very excited about that quick release thing that you see in the drawing. It means I can shoot landscape on my mini tripod!

Drawing

I might have mentioned that I took the Beginning Kourse at Sketchbook Skool. I loved it! It got me out of my funk and back to sketching nearly every day. The last week was taught by Tommy Kane, whom I think I really like the best out of all the artist/teachers. I just like his style the best. And his approach. His assignment was to take hours to draw a very detailed drawing of our kitchen. I did it in 30 minute increments. I really, really enjoyed doing this. Taking the time to really look at the details and draw them was very meditative and relaxing. And, as far as drawing goes, it built my confidence. I feel less overwhelmed by a blank page now. What I did with this drawing was I just started with something, in this case, my stove. And then I just built from there. So the lesson I took away from this is to just start with something. Anything. Don’t even look at it as part of a big picture. Just look at it as a piece of the big picture. Draw it and then move on to the next thing.

Here are some photos of my process and then the final drawing (which I even took the time to scan 🙂 !)
