Milliande Sketchbook Videos

Doodling in my Sketchbook has over the years always been my companion art activity especially when travelling .

I always find a few minutes , sketching an interesting fragment encountered on my journey ...

Often sketchbook keeping gives way to my photography , especially since becoming an iphone photography lover I tend to find myself neglegting the travel sketchbook

But always return to my idea sketchbook for bashing about some seemingly unrelated pieces of inspiration encountered along the way that in turn always nourish my muse when I am ready to paint later on

Sketchbook Journaling London Rooftops Grid Journaling Videos with Milliande , Simple Grid Lines to focus on Small Aspects of a Scene for Keeping a Sketchbook, Ideal for Travel Sketchbooks

I also like to keep a sketchbook for freeflowing and loosening up sketching doodles .. those pittle moments of time captured in a quick sketch ... these are not meant to be masterpieces but rather serve to let a loose line capture the essence of a moment, a fragment of a whole composition ... something taken down to be included in another composition later on .. Raw Sketchbook sketches... not honed , not trimmed,not worked over again and again ... just released onto the sketchbook page.... studies of a particular aspects, preliminary drawings , quick glimpse out of a moving car ... etc

Have you ever tried sketching rooftops .. or from a roof garden ? Or climbed to the top of a building, maybe taken the elevator all the way up to peek ?

A lot of museums here in London have upper level viewing galleries too ..a fab place for a little grid journaling

Try and find a place where you can sit sheltered with a view from above .. think of your neibourhoud which part might be built up enough to offer a good view

~ This type of grid journaling is fun to try in a busy city but even climbing on a ladder can provide a different viewpoint in a rural neigbourhood ..watching items from above

~ Here a peek of how I played at from the roof garden on top of our apartmentblock in London ...
